Interfaith Relations after One Hundred Years
Christian Mission among Other Faiths (Regnum Edinburgh Centenary)
Edinburgh 2010 has a special relevance for Christians in India, particurlarly when we consider the contributions Indian Christians continue to make both academically and in their day-to-day lives to living out and promoting interfaith relations and interfaith dialogue. For the typical Indian Christian, living with a neighbor of another faith is a daily reality. This pluralism has influenced Christians in India to view ecumenism in a realistic and appreciative manner.
The essays in this book reflect not only this acceptance and celebration of pluralism within India but also, by extension, an acceptance of and a need for unity among Indian Christians of different denominations. The essays were presented and studied at a preparatory consultation on Study Theme II: Christian Mission among Other Faiths, under the theme "Interfaith Relations among Other Faiths" at the United Theological College, Bangalore, India, July 17-19, 2009.
