About the Authors
  • Michael Barnes SJ contributes to the debate about the place of inter-religious relations in the life of the Church by developing a "theology of dialogue". He offers a critique of much current thinking in this area and proposes instead a theology rooted in the themes of welcome and hospitality. He argues for a vision of Christianity as a "school of faith", a community called not only to teach others but to learn from them as well.

    • An alternative vision of how Christian faith is to be articulated through dialogue with 'the other'
    • Addresses a subject of intense debate within and among the churches in recent years
    • Will sell both to academic theologians and ethicists, as well as to church professionals and others involved with inter-faith relations both in Europe and the US

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...richly interesting...There's a great deal to applaud and be grateful for in this book. It offers a fully Christian theology, beginning from and returning to the liturgy. The issue it identifies is of central importance to any such theology, and...its argument for an ethical heterology as essential to Christian theology is convincing." Modern Theology

    "...fascinating and complex...This well-written and well-argued book should be of interest to anyone involved in constructive theology today." The Journal of Religion
