Description

Interreligious Reading After Vatican II brings together for the first time leading scholars from within and outside the Catholic tradition to discuss and undertake interreligious reading in the light of Vatican II. 

  • Focuses on Scriptural Reasoning and Comparative Theology, and considers the relationship between interreligious engagement and Receptive Ecumenism within the Church
  • Details key events in the history of forms of study across faith traditions
  • Offers a fresh analysis of the impact and on-going legacy of the Second Vatican Council
  • Tackles questions about scripture, doctrine, tradition, philosophy and ecumenism in connection with theories and practices of interreligious reading and reasoning
  • Inspires readers to think about how to engage with others within and beyond their own religious tradition
