In Christ and Reconciliation Veli-Matti K?rkk?inen develops a constructive Christology and theology of salvation in dialogue with the best of Christian tradition, contemporary theology in its global and contextual diversity, as well as insights from other major living faiths.
This is K?rkk?inen's Constructive Christian Theology for the Pluralistic World is a five-volume project that aims to develop a new approach to and method of doing Christian theology in a pluralistic world at the beginning of the third millennium. With the metaphor of hospitality serving as the framework for his discussion, K?rkk?inen engages four living faiths — Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism — in sympathetic and critical mutual dialogue while remaining robustly Christian in his convictions. Never before has a full-scale doctrinal theology been attempted in such a wide and deep dialogical mode.
