Argues for a religious pluralism which fully respects all the great world religions. Re-examines the doctrine of the incarnation, with its implication that Christianity alone was founded by God in person, and claims that a true relationship with God takes different forms within the different faith communities. Sketches a global theory of religious knowledge, and offers a philosophy of religious pluralism. (Trans. German, Chinese, Korean, Japanese)
