The Other As A Partner In Dialogue

The view of the other as a partner in inter-religious dialogue became a leading mode of encounter during the latter part of the twentieth century. The setting up of the Sub-Unit on Dialogue with People of Other Faiths and Ideologies at the World Council of Churches in 1971, under the leadership of Stanley Samartha from India, is indicative of this shift.

See C. S. Song, Third-Eye Theology: Theology in Formation in Asian Settings (Maryknoll: Orbis Books, 1979); M. Thomas Thangaraj, The Crucified Guru: An Experiment in Cross-Cultural Christology (Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1994). And there are several more books of this kind which view the Asian religious traditions as the cultural backdrop for Christian theology in Asia. P. D. Devanandan and M. M. Thomas (eds.), Christian Participation in Nation-Building (Bangalore: Christian Institute for the Study of Religion and Society, 1960). Ibid., p. 300.
