CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD 3rd Place, Interfaith
In this thought-provoking book, which evolved from a lively panel discussion at the 2017 AAR conference in Boston, renowned scholars in the fields of comparative and interreligious theology respond to Perry Schmidt-Leukel’s novel approach to the understanding of religious diversity using fractals, patterns found in science and nature.
Conversation partners from multiple faith traditions include Race, Knitter, Francis Clooney, John Makransky, and Ephraim Meir.
Alan Race is former dean of postgraduate studies at St. Philip’s Centre, Leicester, and former rector at St. Margaret’s Church, Lee, in South London. He is the editor of the international journal Interreligious Insight and has written numerous books and articles, including Christians and Religious Pluralism (Orbis) and Thinking about Religious Pluralism.
Paul Knitter is professor emeritus of theology, world religions, and culture at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and professor emeritus at Xavier University. His books include Introducing Theologies of Religions and Jesus and the Other Names (both Orbis).
