Is Christian faith the only or best route to relationship with God? Shared action and dialogue between people whose faith experiences differ are changing the way Christian theologians are thinking about religious pluralism. Other religions are a source of spiritual vision and to be respected for what they can teach us. It has taken Christian theology many years to come to this point and there is no going back.
Alan Race is an expert in the interreligious field and has, throughout his career and ministry, built up a reputation for understanding and dialogue between faith communities. Here, he deals with the use of Scripture, inclusivism and exclusivism, pluralism and particularism, mission and dialogue. The next phase of Christian thought, he argues, will be shaped by new appreciation and insight stemming from the fact that Christianity is one religion among many.
