The academic study of religion is undergoing great changes in response to globalization. Just as sociologists now find it necessary to think in terms of multiculturalism, so religion scholars and theologians today must work in the context of multireligiosity. Globalization is leading not only to multiethnic societies but also to plurality in religions and worldviews.^"Theology and the Religions: A Dialogue" offers the first sustained analysis of the trend toward multireligiosity and its implications for the study of religion. Drawing on the resources of cultural analysis, religious studies, and theology, an international slate of scholars explores the relation of multiculturality and multireligiosity, the need for interreligious dialogue, and the possibilities for a theology of religions. This groundbreaking work is supported by case studies of various religious traditions in diverse cultures from around the world. Special attention is paid to Christian theological reflection, however, since, as a global religion, Christianity is particularly challenged by multireligiosity.^Offering an engaging, wide-angle view of religion worldwide, "Theology and the Religions "makes a vital contribution to our understanding of the forces shaping the future of religious and social life. ^Contributors: Kajsa Ahlstrand^Theodor Ahrens^Jan-Martin Berentsen^Ulrich Dehn^Helene Egnell^Marianne C.
