Overview

This book presents three different, influential and representative theological approaches towards the world religions. Students are not only introduced to the field, but get three passionate and intelligent 'takes' on what is at stake. By means of a response to each of the primary essays, the authors are put into interaction with each other, and are also engaged with the most contemporary scholarship in the field of theology of religions.This sustained and high level critical interaction between the authors provides a feature that is not to be found in any other current work in theology of religions. The three views represent: conservative Roman Catholic Christianity (D'Costa), Reformed evangelical Christianity (Strange) and liberationist liberal Christianity (Knitter). This book will therefore appeal to a very wide theological market from all sections of the theological spectrum.

Editorial Reviews

Kenneth Cracknell
'This is an admirably conceived and well-executed book ... The conversation covers an enormous range of theological discourse with many fresh insights. Their arguments are enriched by wide-ranging bibliographic resources ... the book will be invaluable for theological students (and their teachers) whether in the classroom or library. Church leaders and general readers will also find the format and presentation very attractive. D'Costa, Knitter and Strange model for all of us serious thoughtful inter-Christian dialogue and we owe them a debt of gratitude.'
