''Never before in history have people of different faiths, cultures, and ideologies been drawn together as a community for common purposes as now.'' -- (editor) Mathews George Chunakara *** Rather than seeing each other as enemies or rivals, today's interreligious environment allows for open-minded encounters that also fully acknowledge the tensions and even oppressions of the past. In this book, Christian theologians reflect on the how their encounters with Hinduism in pluralistic settings has changed their approaches - toward interreligious dialogue, sacred scriptures and ecclesiology, charged religious involvement in politics, and learning from Hinduism - in order to create a more responsible Christian community. The book is part of a long-term World Council of Churches' project on Christian self-understanding in light of various other religious traditions.
