RELIGIOUS PLURALISM & INTERRELIGIOUS THEOLOGY
The Gifford Lectures
Author: Perry Schmidt-Leukel
Perry Schmidt- Leukel, in this extended version of his 2015 Gifford Lectures, argues that this position—often called "religious pluralism"—must be developed within particular insights supplied by each of the major traditions.
Although severe barriers to religious pluralism exist within each tradition, he shows nevertheless that possibilities for a pluralist understanding exist in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Chinese religions. Interreligious theology, he argues, carries the promise of being the theology of the future.

THE CHURCH WE WANT
African Catholics Look to Vatican III
Author: A. E. Orobator
Africa continues to experience great religious ferment, not only in the enormous growth of Christianity over the past century but also in the intellectual output of African theologians all over the continent.
This volume brings together Africa’s theological elders with new and emerging voices to bring analysis and reflection on what John L. Allen Jr. has called “the most dynamic corner of the Christian map.”
The volume is a treasure for anyone with an interest in theological reflection from an African perspective, and a necessary resource for theologians and scholars working in a church that is steadily moving its centre to the Global South.

DO NOT STIFLE THE SPIRIT
Conversations with Jacques Dupuis
Author: Gerard O'Connell
Before his death more than twelve years ago, Jacques Dupuis, a prominent Catholic theologian who faced a long persecution by his own church for his teachings on religious pluralism, sat down for a book-length interview with Gerard O’Connell, a Catholic journalist, for America, the Jesuit magazine.
Dupuis insisted that the frank and honest transcript not be published until after he died and certain other curial figures were out of office.This hidden treasure is finally unburied and presents not only Dupuis’ life story (including his tragic final years) but also his views on religious pluralism, interreligious dialogue, and ecclesiology.
