Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralism
By: Jacques Dupuis, S.J.
In this magisterial book, Jacques Dupuis brings together a lifetime of study, reflection, and experience in both Europe and Asia to outline a significant shift in Christian theological understanding of world religious pluralism. The premise of Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralism is that the question has shifted from whether â€œsalvationâ€ occurs for members of other religious traditions to how in Godâ€™s plan these traditions mediate salvation to their members.
Written with scholarly balance and theological sure-footedness, Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralism is a masterwork, a book that is destined to become the classic scholarly analysis of the most important question facing Christian theology in a world of religious diversity.
Jacques Dupuis S.J. (1923-2004), a native of Belgium, taught theology from 1948 to 1984 in India. He served as professor of theology at the Gregorian University in Rome, where he also directed the Universityâ€™s journal Gregorianum. His other books include Jesus Christ at the Encounter of World Religions and Who Do You Say I Am?
