Religious diversity and the American experience: a theological approach
Religious Diversity and the American Experience surveys the eight or so basic theological approaches to religious pluralism, ranging from exclusivism through classic inclusivism, revised inclusivism, pluralism, particularism, and radical particularism to comparative theologies and dual belonging. This will mark its usefulness as a text. However, its unique contribution is how it situates the issue of pluralism in the cultural site of the United States (here relying on the "thick" cultural analyses of Robert Wuthnow, Vincent Miller, and others) and in the religious site of Roman Catholicism (as offering the mainstream Christian response to religious diversity). The aim is to develop the best "pragmatic" approach to religious diversity, that is, the one that has the greatest potential for helping shape and reform religious and civic practice. Book jacket.
