"Leading exponents of the idea that all religions are a refraction of a truth no single tradition can exclusively reveal discuss what to make of that conviction in today's world of interreligious strife. The authors represent Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism, and include such well-known figures as John Hick, Rita M. Gross, Arvind Sharma, Sallie King, Roger Haight, Dan Cohn-Sherbok, and Ashgar Ali Engineer. These scholars make a compelling case for taking the next step in interreligious interchange: the development of a multifaith, pluralistic theology of religions."--Jacket

The uniqueness of Jesus : a dialogue with Paul F. Knitter by Paul F Knitter( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since publication of his landmark book No Other Name?, Paul Knitter's work has crystallized discussions and defined some of the most basic questions in Christian theology. This is so particularly in the debate over the uniqueness of Jesus as God's son and as all of humankind's sole redeemer. In The Uniqueness of Jesus, Knitter responds to the request of editors Leonard Swidler and Paul Mojzes to state the most adequate case for a viable Christian theology of religions and for the demands of living ecumenically in a religiously plural world. The result is Knitter's five basic theses on the "uniqueness of Jesus" that comprise the opening statement in this dialogue. In response, a score of influential women and men comment on these five theses, including: Harvey Cox, Monika Hellweg, Hans Kung, Wesley Ariarajah, Clark H. Pinnock, Jose Miguez Bonino, John Macquarrie, Raimon Panikkar, John Sanders, John Mbiti, Ingred Shafer, Michael Alamadoss, Kajsa Ahlstrand, Michael von Bruck, John B. Cobb Jr., Kenneth Cragg, Antony Fernando, John Hick, Karl-Josef Kuschel, and Seiichi Yagi. Knitter then responds to his critics, some of whom, he concedes, make substantial points that reveal the difficulties of the road ahead

Only one way? : three Christian responses to the uniqueness of Christ in a pluralistic world by Gavin D'Costa( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. An exceptional resource for the general reader or student of theology, this volume succinctly introduces the three major Christian positions on religious diversity. Written with theological precision, readable prose and autobiographical detail, the dialogical format puts the reader at the center of an intimate conversation where she can follow closely the moves each theologian makes to defend his position. Simply put, the exchange illuminates the very different stances Christian theologians take in the response to other religions, and helps readers to see the diverse methodological options for a Christian theology of religious pluralism"--Publisher's website

One earth, many religions : multifaith dialogue and global responsibility by Paul F Knitter( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Indonesian and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's foremost exponents of the "pluralist" position as the most adequate Christian theological account of religious diversity turns to a new and urgent issue facing the community of world religions. For Paul Knitter, the spectre of environmental and social injustice looms over any serious discussion of humankind's future. As urgent as it is to have peace among the world's believers to achieve peace among nations, it is urgent that these communities unite in understanding and defending of the earth. In One Earth Many Religions Knitter looks back at his own "dialogical odyssey" and forward to the way that interfaith encounters and dialogue must focus attention on new challenges. Nothing less than enlisting the commitment of the world's religions on the task of saving our common home will do. In making that case, Knitter makes clear the complex structurespolitical, economic, and social as well as religious - that face those who approach this task. While articulating a "this-worldly soteriology" necessary to overcome our eco-human plight, Knitter offers practical considerations on actions and projects that have and should have been undertaken to stem the tide of environmental and human suffering. The global crisis is both at the center of One Earth Many Religions and a test case for Knitter and others engaged in the dialogue of religions. Can religious differences concerning the nature of the transcendent themselves be transcended in order to promote eco-human well-being? The issue seems basic and clearif interreligious dialogue cannot effect such a change, then one must question whether religion is of any use whatsoever
