With the AAANZ Conference, from Pieces to Peace: More Than Just Neighbours in a Multifaith World, coming up on 25-28 of January, I’ve been reading a few articles which seek to articulate a “theology of religions” for Christians living in a pluralistic context.
One such article is A “Trinitarian” Theology of Religions? An Augustinian Assessment of Several Recent Proposals by Keith Edward Johnson. In it he examines some recent proposals from Amos Yong, Panikkar and others. Personally, while I am not nearly so enamoured by Augustinian theology, I share some of his reservations about the way Trinitarian doctrine is being used by some to selectively to evade or water down Christology is the field of missiology. What do you think? Has your experience been any different?
