Divergent Traditions, Converging Faiths

Troeltsch, Comparative Theology, and the Conversation with Hinduism

Series:

Joseph Molleur

Divergent Traditions, Converging Faiths explores the relevance and usefulness of a comparative, inter-religious method for contemporary Christian theology, using the work of Ernst Troeltsch as a springboard. It also examines pertinent aspects of the work of Schleiermacher, Tillich, Raimon Panikkar, and Francis X. Clooney, and develops a test case involving a comparison of Hindu and Christian concepts of grace. The guiding question is, should contemporary Christian theologians take the doctrines of non-Christians into account in their constructive doctrinal work, and if so, how?
