This fascinating and nuanced volume engages with the innovative and
at the same time contentious debate on religious pluralism mooted
by John Hick, one of the most prominent British philosophers of
religion. In celebrating Hick's voluminous work, a team of eminent
and emerging scholars, representing a broad range of philosophical
and theological perspectives, offer a succinct and incisive
analysis of Hick's ideas and their enduring relevance for a world
which is becoming increasingly polarized. These essays not only
deal with theoretical and doctrinal aspects of interreligious
discourse, but also focus on developing a discourse that challenges
any form of religious absolutism.They address important questions
such as how to articulate a philosophy or theology of religious
pluralism that is not triumphalistic, how to affirm a spirituality
that is not restrictive, how to speak about liberation that does
not smack of theological finality. Besides issues related to
religious pluralism, this volume also contains illuminating essays
on themes such as suffering and theodicy. This insightful volume
should be of immense interest and value to scholars and students of
religion and lay readers.
