An Analysis and Theological Critique of the Hindu-Christian Encounter in India
With rare exceptions, serious intentional, relflective and sustained inter-faith encounter is a novel and recent enterprise. This book looks in detail at one such encounter - the intentional recent Hindu-Christian dialogue in India - and asks why and how the practice of dialogue came to replace previous attitudes of confrontation and monologue (espcially on the part of Christians).
Unlike many other works in the area of inter-faith studies, this work combines both descriptive detail of the actual encounter and critical theological analysis of the strenghts and weakness of the dialogue model.
