The Joy of Religious Pluralism: A Personal Journey

The Joy of Religious Pluralism: A Personal Journey, by Peter C. Phan is basically his response to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s investigation of his book Being Religious Interreligiously begun in 2005. What is important in this volume is that while Phan gives a spirited affirmation of methods of Asian theology, which is rooted in the gospel and the deposit of faith, he acknowledges it differs in many respects from the assumptions and categories of traditional European theology. The book is divided into six chapters:

  1. How It All Began
  2. Different Ways of Doing Theology
  3. Divine Spirit
  4. Jesus Christ, the Unique and Universal Savior
  5. Holy Pagans in Other Holy Religions
  6. Church and Mission.
