Each generation of theologians must respond to the context in which they find themselves, and our context today is one of plurality. What, exactly, should a pluralistic theology look like? How can we take seriously our pluralistic context and still remain true to a tradition? This groundbreaking book moves beyond dialogue to incorporation, and develops a methodology for the future of pluralistic theology. Using postmodern epistemology, historical theology, and ancient wisdom literature, Steven L. Wiebe crafts a Christian doctrine of creation that is in dialogue with Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. This book will be useful in courses on world religions, systematic theology, and pluralism.
