Who Do We Say That We Are? : Christian Identity in a Multi-Religious World (Paperback)
About this item
"Particularly since the beginning of the 21st century, political, ideological, and religious shifts have given a new edge to the need for Christians to engage appropriately with religious plurality," say the authors of this illuminating work. Their statement, fruit of ten years of consultations about Christianity's encounter with and relation to other major religious traditions, is in aid of Christians' self-understanding as they live and work and dialogue with people of other faiths. What is core to Christian identity? What is peripheral? How can the claims of Christian belief be reconciled to open encounter with others who think differently? The sections of this document explore some key aspects of how Christian identity has been challenged by religious diversity, and how Christian commitment may actually be nourished by meeting in dialogue with those who do not share our perspective. Building on and elaborated through an explicitly Trinitarian framework, it explores each locus through its core convictions and how they can be newly discovered and deepened in interreligious exchange. Rather than be threatened by the increase in religious plurality, this statement shows, Christians can come to new and more profound appreciation of their own identity through interreligious interaction.
