About this item

This book explores the possibilities and problems attendant upon the field of Hindu-Christian Studies, the reasons for occasional flourishing and decline in such studies, and the narrow conditions under which the field can flourish in the 21st century. The chapters examine Christian–Hindu dialogue and highlight Jesuit engagement with Hinduism, thus providing a case for intellectual cooperation.

The author is a proponent and expert in the new field of comparative theology, a controversial area that is informed by philological scholarship and uses intellectual tools of rational inquiry not restricted to any one tradition. This book is a signficant contribution to a sophisticated understanding of Christianity and Hinduism in relation. It presents a robust defense of the practice of comparative theology and will be of interest to scholars in the field of Religious Studies, Theology, Christianity and Hindu Studies.
