Introducing Theologies of Religion

Knitter, Paul F. Introducing Theologies of Religion. Maryknoll, N.Y.: Orbis Books, 2005.

Call No.: 261.2 K749i

Publisher's Description: An up-to-date, accessible, and comprehensive study of every major position taken by Christian churches and theologians on world religions and religious pluralism.

This volume shares insights into the positions of writers concerned with understanding Christianity among the world’s great religious traditions. Avoiding tired labels of past debates (Exclusivism, Pluralism, and Inclusivism), Knitter suggest four different models (Replacement, Fulfillment, Mutuality, and Acceptance) that more adequately link together thirteen ways of approaching and understanding the variety of the world’s religious expressions.
