Theology of religions is an area of theological reflection on inter-religious relations which raises fundamental questions for all people of faith in a pluralist, post-modern world. How to practise a religious faith with integrity while respecting other claims to ultimate truth? Must 'the other' always be regarded as a problematic complication on the fringes of a Christianity-centred world? Is there a 'third way' between an all-dominating exclusivism and a vapid relativism? This book contributes to the debate about the place of inter-religious relations in the life of the Church by developing a 'theology of dialogue'. In offering a critique of much current thinking in this area, Michael Barnes SJ proposes instead a theology rooted in the themes of welcome and hospitality. He argues for a vision of Christianity as a 'school of faith', a community called not just to teach others but to learn from them as well.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Michael Barnes's book is eirenic, profound and original.' Church Times
'Barnes' great strength is that he combines a grasp of this daunting philosophical material with the wisdom born of a firm grounding in the messy actualities of inter-faith relations.' Michael Ipgrave, Theology
'This book is worth reading ... A dialogue of religions - learning how to talk - is all the more important in current times. Theology and the Dialogue of Religions is not a final word. it is an invitation to further reflection.' The Heythrop Journal
'... an important book. Barnes has developed a new approach within the field.' Reviews in Religion and Theology
