An Imaginative Glimpse
The Trinity and Multiple Religious Participations
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"In this insightful and theologically grounded work, Adiprasetya engages with great expertise and grace the three leading Trinitarian theologians of religions: Panikkar, D'Costa, and Heim. The end result of this sympathetic and critical dialogue is an innovative proposal to negotiate religious pluralism."
--Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Adiprasetya interestingly draws from Moltmann's 'open Trinity' and Kearney's 'God who may be' to think beyond the solutions that Panikkar, Heim, and I have proposed in using the Trinity to reflect on religious pluralism. Adiprasetya opens up new creative avenues in freshly employing perichoresis in this field. His work is stimulating and raises significant questions."
--Gavin D'Costa, Professor of Religion and Theology, University of Bristol
"Adiprasetya's book lifts perichoresis out of its original, strictly theological context--the Christian doctrine of the Trinity--into a broader philosophical context, namely, a new paradigm for the One and the Many as applied to interreligious dialogue."
--Joseph Bracken, Emeritus Professor of Theology, Xavier University
"An Imaginative Glimpse is a multifaceted gem. It engages with sharp clarity and scholarly rigor a host of contemporary theologians thinking about the Trinity and world religions. . . . Despite its range, however, the book develops a coherent argument, sympathetic but dialectical, leading a new way forward for Christians to think about religions other than their own."
--Robert C. Neville, Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology, Boston University
"Christian theology cannot avoid the challenges religious plurality offers to key aspects of its self-understanding. Creative theological responses are required. In this well-argued book Adiprasetya offers a fundamental basis for such engagement--the Trinitarian understanding of perichoresis--and explores imaginatively . . . how this classical Christian doctrine can provide an important resource as Christians today seek to engage the religiously complex worlds in which they live."
