Christianity and Religious Diversity

In what ways is Christian, theological self-understanding informed by encountering non-Christian religions? This course gives particular attention to themes such as cosmopolitanism, hybridity, pluralism and relativism. First, students examine Christian theological resources — both traditional and emerging — for understanding religious diversity. Secondly they explore the development, beliefs, and practices of the Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic traditions. Students draw on the Christian theological framework to answer constructively questions about the relationship between Christianity and these religious groups. Prerequisite: THRS 117.
