Translated by Teresa Talavera and David C. SchindlerIn a religiously plural world, truth claims concerning the buniquenessb and buniversalityb of Jesus Christ raise a host of challenging questions. Is it really true that affirming the singularity of Jesus Christ implies an aggressive attitude toward other religions? Or can Christianity display a potential for openness and peaceful encounter with other religions?Written by seven Catholic scholars of religion, this compelling book explores the topic of truth within the Christian faith and seeks to integrate the christological understanding of Jesus into a meaningful btheology of religions.b Original, sensitive, and thought-provoking, these studies lay the foundation for an alternative way of making sense of religious plurality, demonstrating that Christianity, rightly viewed, has the capacity to explain the fact that so many religious paths exist.Contributors: Marcello BordoniWalter Cardinal KasperKarl-Heinz MenkeGerhard LudwigMullerMichael SchulzAngelo Cardinal ScolaMassimo Serretti
