Product Description


... if there is to be inter-religious theological conversation at all ... it is true that reason must be its presupposition and mainstay. Francis Clooney has written the definitive work on this in the context of the Hindu-Christian encounter. The book is therefore indispensable reading for any serious study on the topic. (Hindu-Christian Studies Bulletin)

Clooney's account is lucid and clearly argued, establishing a regular format with a neat juxtaposition of approaches and brief but well-focused summaries ... Theology which is so imaginative and so intelligent is a rare commodity these days. This is a book which deserves a wide readership. (Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society)

Product Description

This volume offers an in-depth study of key themes common to the Hindu and Christian religious traditions. It redefines how we think about Hinduism, comparative study, and Christian theology. This book offers a bold new look at how traditions encounter one another, and how good comparisons are to be made. Redefining theology as an interreligious, comparative, dialogical, and confessional practice open to all people, it invites not only Hindus and Christians, but also theologians from all religious traditions, to enter into conversation with one another.

3.0 out of 5 stars generally disappointed with some good areas 14 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Perhaps I was rather naive to expect it to be mostly about a comparison of Hindu God and Christian God since what came across as the most important area of discussion was how to actually do comparative theology rather than the content of the topic in question which was what I was interested in. The area I found the most interesting was the views of the Christian theologians under discussion whereas the comparison of the two areas and the Hindu theology I found laboured and rather unrewarding.
