Response to Reviews of "No Other Name? Critical Survey of Christian Attitudes Toward the World Religions"

Knitter, Paul

I wrote No Other Name? to ask a question and invite a response—the question mark on the title page is meant with utter seriousness. In the book I wanted to formulate as lucidly as possible what I think is a pressing, though often unconfronted, question for Christian belief and practice and then to propose what I think is a viable, though still controversial, answer to that question. My answer, though, is still part of the question. Whether the proposed "theocentric model" (or something like it) is valid for the Christian academy and ecclesia will depend, in great measure, on how much it merits the "placet" or (to be realistic) the "placet juxta modum" of my theological colleagues and fellow believers.
