Religious pluralism in theological education

Knitter, Paul

In this essay, I will try to explain and ground a conviction that I share with many colleagues in the Christian theological community: that one of the reasons why Christian theological education is not adequately doing its job of mediating between culture and religion has to do with the mono-religions character of most Christian theology today. Theological educators are going about their job on the basis of an exclusive, or too restrictive, use of Christian tradition and experience. They have closed themselves to, or are not sufficiently open to, other religious traditions and identities.
