Christianity And The Specific Encounters

Having looked at a theology of religions, we now turn to the question of the different theologies for the meeting with each specific religion. Questions of mission and indigenization/inculturation are obviously central, but they in turn depend on doctrines regarding God, Christ, the Church and humankind. When Christianity meets Judaism, the questions are very different from when Christianity meets Hinduism; and this occurs not only because of the historical differences between Judaism and Hinduism, but also because of the differing social and political contexts of the meetings of these religions. I cannot possibly deal with even a brief outline of Christianity's relationship to the four major religions (let alone the many others), so I will offer two brief case studies, so that some contours of this particular map become evident.
