Understanding Religious Pluralism: Perspectives from Religious Studies and Theology, edited by Jonathan Ray and Peter C. Phan. Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2014.
The essays in this volume range from explorations of the impact of religious diversity on religious studies to examples of interfaith encounter and dialogue, and current debates on Christian theology of religion. These essays examine not only the theoretical issues posed by religious pluralism to the study of religion and Christian theology but also concrete cases in which religious pluralism has been a bone of contention. Together, they open up new vistas for further conversation on the nature and development of religious pluralism.
