Descrizione
In our pluralistic society, interreligious dialogue is an issue no longer restricted to academia. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and those of other faiths are just as likely to be our neighbors and co-workers as Catholics, Protestants, and Jews. Traditional ways of understanding other religions in relation to Christianity and salvation repeatedly fail. As recourse, the author presents an all-new model that moves beyond the paralysis of theorizing into active encounters with non-Christian religions, then uses these encounters as a way to transform our own understanding of our Christian faith. Faith among Faiths - - surveys the contemporary debate about a theology of religions, summarizing the thoughts of its major thinkers - presents its own model of "doing theology comparatively" - gives two examples of the model, comparing a story about Krishna with a parable, and exploring the meaning of Christian resurrection through the thought of Zen Buddhism
