Understanding Religious Pluralism
Perspectives from Religious Studies and Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Understanding Religious Pluralism is the rare edited volume that, in its diversity of voices and approaches, contributes by focus and depth to our grasp of the prospects and problems inherent in today's pluralistic environment. The major addresses and responses sharpen the key issues, while the accompanying papers chart where we can go with respect to particular texts and contexts, possibilities, and questions. Even as it reports on a rich set of conversations already in place, the volume opens the door to many more."
--Francis X. Clooney, Harvard University
"The editors, well aware that Western Christians are late to the discussion of 'religious pluralism,' have thrown the net widely in this volume to offer a host of insightful essays. Some provide new angles on expected topics (methodology, St. Paul, religions, and salvation), others probe unexpectedly rich resources (Nicholas of Cusa, Islam), but all of them bring more clarity to the diverse meanings of 'pluralism' and the continuing conundrum of religious diversity."
--Anthony J. Godzieba, Villanova University
