Rethinking Theologies of Interreligious Dialogue
This chapter reflects on the many and varied challenges facing the theology of interreligious dialogue, and provides a structure within which these challenges and the responses proposed by leading theologians are made comprehensible. What is at stake in the contemporary debate about the nature and goals of the theology of interreligious dialogue relates to the ‘triple axis’ that is at the heart of any and all theological reflection, namely, “tradition,” “experience,” and the “encounter with otherness.” This chapter reflects on the fashion in which each contributor to this volume seeks to draw lessons from the past, with a view to addressing the needs arising out of the present, and charting a course for the future of interreligious encounter.
