Journal: Studies in Interreligious Dialogue
Volume: 17 Issue: 2 Date: 2007
Interreligious dialogue has become indispensable for Christian theology in reshaping and reinterpreting the meaning of the gospel, listening to the wisdom of non-Christian religions. In this process, Christian theology benefits itself, gaining enrichment and depth from God’s “irregular and other” voice coming from the world of religions. Luther’s theology of justification can be also enriched and deepened through dialogue with the Buddhist concept of faith and compassion, so that the Christian theology of enculturation makes it necessary to construct a new hermeneutic of audacity in the interreligious field.
