Faith Meets Faith Series
Twenty-five eminent international scholars describe how Roman Catholic theology has grappled with religious pluralism.
This magisterial work outlines, clarifies, and defends official Roman Catholic teaching on the relationship between Christianity and other religious traditions in the light of Catholic belief that "We must hold that the Holy Spirit offers to all the possibility of being made partners, in a way known to God, in the paschal mystery" (Pastoral Constitution of the Church in the Modern World, 22).
Part I explores the history of these issues while Part II examines their theological framing. Part III addresses Christianity and the other religions since Vatican II. Part IV deals specifically with Judaism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and Islam as these traditions see themselves in relation to Christianity. A final chapter by Michael Fitzgerald offers a theological reflection on the foundations of interreligious dialogue today.
