"Never before in history have people of different faiths, cultures and ideologies been drawn together as a community for common purposes as now," says editor Mathews George. Rather than seeing each other as enemies or rivals or prey, today's interreligious environment allows for open-minded encounter that also fully acknowledges the tensions and even oppressions of the past. Here Christian theologians reflect on the how their encounters with Hinduism in pluralistic settings has changed their approaches to interreligious dialogue, to sacred scriptures and ecclesiology, to charged religious involvement in politics, and to learning from Hinduism in order to create a more responsible Christian community. Part of a long-term WCC project on Christian self-understanding in light of various other religious traditions, this volume presents contributions from S. Wesley Ariarajah, Joseph Pathrapankal, K. P. Aleaz, James Massey, Mathews George Chunakara, Sebastian C. H. Kim, L. Jayachitra, and K. M. George. Includes the report and statement of the consultation.
