An increasingly important question facing theologians today is the relationship between Christianity and the other major religions of the world. How does religious pluralism affect Christianity's claim to absoluteness? In considering these questions the author distinguishes three main types of response, and by examining the views of representative figures from each of these `schools', moves tentatively to some answers. Identifying these responses as exclusivist, pluralist and inclusivist, Gavin D'Costa considers each in turn. He concludes the book by suggesting avenues for further thought, outlining some of the practical issues that may arise in the pursuit of dialogue between different religions.
