At times, we make reports concerning the progress we have made, or the steps we are taking, in expanding the dialogues between religions.
Jacques Dupuis, S.J. and Interreligious Dialogue
The theology of religions is the discipline in which Christians reflect on the resources in the Christian tradition that guide their encounters with people of other religious traditions.Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralism (Maryknoll: Orbis Books, 1997) by Jacques Dupuis, S.J. is an important contribution to the discipline. As well known, it is also a book that has received much attention and provoked some debate. The three items included here – the Notification by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Article of Comment on the Notification of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith pertaining to the book of J. Dupuis: Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralis published in L’Osservattore Romano, and the Statement by the General of the Society of Jesus, Peter Hans Kolvenbach – give just some of the context in which this important book is now read.
