Interfaith Spaces and Claims of Religious Identity
Edited By Andreas Kunz-Lübcke
In the latest discussion on the relations between religions, it has often been argued that monotheism necessarily leads to intolerance and exclusivism. A religion which claims to worship «the one and only true God» is inevitably forced to reject every religious behaviour and practices of «the Other». But is this really the case? This volume contains contributions which discuss the major question: What are the instruments and the strategies used in different religious settings where interreligious encounter is part of daily life? Most of the contributions concentrate on the challenges of theology in the context of India. A special focus will be on approaches for interreligious coexistence derived from Biblical or Systematic Theology.
We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of Evangelisches Missionswerk in Deutschland (EMW). The EMW partially sponsored the costs for the 2016 consultation at United Theological College in Bangalore, India, and the printing costs of this volume. Without this generous contribution and commitment, the whole project would never have taken off.
Furthermore, we express our gratitude to the authors. Without their inspiring and challenging contributions, this volume would not have been possible.
Our final thanks are for those who dedicated time and knowledge to copy-editing and proof-reading. Our special thanks here go to Esther Ho.
