Asia is the cradle of all the World Religions, and it may be the task of Asia to develop a radically new theology of religions relevant for our times, and to evolve new models and styles of interreligious fellowships. Religions must relate to one another in a healthy, dialogical and collaborative spirit. They must break open their narrow boundaries, sterile dogmatism, legalism and ritualism, and grow up by mutual giving and taking, and cultivate healthy and mutually enriching relationship. Among all the Asian countries India has a specially privileged position to undertake this challenge of developing a new theology of religions, as all the major World Religions existed in India side by side for centuries, and interreligious harmony and fellowship has been always part of the Indian ethos. Theologians in India are responding to this call, and the present book is one of the instances where a concerted effort is made by he Catholic theologians under the auspices of the Indian Theological Association to evolve a theology of religious pluralism.
