The New Comparative Theology

Francis X Clooney

$36.99

Paperback

This is be a volume of closely connected essays that illumines where (Christian and other) theologies are going today, how religious pluralism is better theorized in light of past errors, and how the diversity of religions is becoming a solid topic for theological learning.

This is a volume that will be useful in the classroom - for advanced undergraduates, and particularly graduate students - and also for the wider audience of theologians and readers interested in current trends in religious studies and theology.

Given the novelty of the field of Comparative Theology and the emphasis on the voices of the new generation, this will be a volume without parallel, meeting a need no other book has met. And, while it is a book of essays, the intensive interaction among the authors in the volume will show that it has a cohesion well beyond what edited volumes often have. ^
