Overview

Michael Barnes SJ contributes to the debate about the place of inter-religious relations in the life of the Church by developing a "theology of dialogue". He offers a critique of much current thinking in this area and proposes instead a theology rooted in the themes of welcome and hospitality. He argues for a vision of Christianity as a "school of faith", a community called not only to teach others but to learn from them as well.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...richly interesting...There's a great deal to applaud and be grateful for in this book. It offers a fully Christian theology, beginning from and returning to the liturgy. The issue it identifies is of central importance to any such theology, and...its argument for an ethical heterology as essential to Christian theology is convincing." Modern Theology

"...fascinating and complex...This well-written and well-argued book should be of interest to anyone involved in constructive theology today." The Journal of Religion
