 From the book cover:

Theologian Wesley Ariarajah believes that authentic Christian faith in today’s religiously plural world demands that we rethink central concepts of the Christian theological tradition. Ariarajah’s work is based on the conviction that some of the basic doctrinal formulations about God, Sin, Christ, Salvation, and Mission can in fact be rethought for our day, helping us to affirm deeply the Christian faith while yet respecting other religious experiences in their distinctiveness. He traces the biblical roots and theological developments of these doctrines, evaluates their coherence, and proposes new constructive options for a Christian theology of religions. The volume proposes new orientations for doing theology and Theology of Religions in the context of religious plurality. It is intended to be a probing invitation to Christians to rethink Christian theology in the context of religious plurality.

 A study guide is being produced in collaboration with the author, Professor of Ecumenical Theology at Drew University School of Theology, New Jersey, USA.
