These superb essays explore the phenomenon of individuals who identity themselves as followers of more than one religious tradition. The results prove that the late Joseph Kitagawa was prescient when he cautioned that the world is "Easternizing" as much as it is "Westernizing," and that "modernization" is a far from adequate key to name what is happening in world religious history in our age.

"The whole question of religious pluralism has been challenging to Christian theologians, but the authors here raise the ante by discussing the truly perplexing problem of multiple religious belonging within a pluralistic society. . . . This is a book that everyone interested in Christian theology in a pluralistic age will need to read." --John Berthrong, Director Institute for Dialogue Among Religious Traditions
