About this item

While we tend to think of religions as distinct, univocal, even competing traditions, the phenomenon of multiple religious belonging is widespread, both historically and today. Alive to a variety of traditions and regions, this volume explores the reality of religious hybridity - whether because of cultural inheritance, family circumstances, or explicit choice - its confounding of traditional categories in theology and the study of religion, and its meaning for Christian theology. Even as it complexifies the idea of religious identity, the authors show, it enriches our understanding of ultimate reality and the whole range of practices by which humans relate to it. Joseph Prabhakar Dayam is Associate Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Theology and Ethics at Gurukul Lutheran Theological College and Research Institute, Chennai, India. Peniel Jesudason Rufus Rajkumar is programme executive for interreligious dialogue and cooperation, World Council of Churches.
