Synthesizing the thinking of the most prominent scholars, professor Edmund Chia discusses practically everything that should be known about Christianity's encounter with other religions in this thorough a book. Topics include:

  • the invention of the idea of World Religions and World Christianity
  • the Bible and the church's attitude toward other faiths
  • Vatican II, Asian Christianity, and interfaith dialogue
  • the what, why, when, and how of dialogue
  • the global ecumenical movement
  • theologies of religious pluralism
  • scriptural reasoning
  • cross-textual hermeneutics
  • comparative theology
  • interfaith worship
  • religious syncretism
  • multiple religious belonging
  • interfaith learning in seminaries
  • Catholic schools and multiculturalism
  • the mission-dialogue paradox
  • and Christian-Muslim dialogue on Original Sin and Redemption.

Edmund Chia, originally from Malaysia, headed the interreligious and ecumenical office of the Federation of Asian Bishops' Conferences from 1996-2004. He then served on the faculty of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago for seven years and, since 2011, has been teaching at the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne. He has an MA in Religion from the Catholic University of America and a PhD in Intercultural Theology from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
