Overview

Increasingly world religious traditions present not just an intellectual or apologetic challenge to Christians but a daily encounter, a source of religious practices, and even live religious options. How are Christians to relate to these traditions and the neighbors and friends who live by them? This lively and engaging book is a great resource for faithful wrestling with the new realities. Led by theologian John B. Cobb Jr. and historian Ward M. McAfee, experts in the Progressive Christians Uniting group have distilled the historical and existential import of both Abrahamic and other traditions-Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Native American religion-and stressed their distinctiveness and the richness they can afford Christian self-understanding. At once a practical and a theological resource, the volume also includes study materials.
