Join Paul Knitter and Shanta Premawardhana for Intensive Course on Religious Pluralism June 6 – 10

SCUPE 4-Day Intensive in Chicago June 6 – 10 Explores Religious Pluralism’s Challenge to Christianity
Faculty: Dr. Paul Knitter and SCUPE President/Parliament Trustee Dr. Shanta Premawardhana
Students will explore questions such as: What are Christians to make of the sheer fact of religious diversity? Are religious traditions efficacious to one and the same goal, many paths to the same divine reality? Or is salvation only possible through the Word made flesh in Jesus and through the Holy Spirit? This course will survey the major developments of the last several decades within the theology of religions and the comparative approaches taken by different theological traditions. We will ask if they need to be reformulated, and if so, how? Do the central loci within Christian theology have to be re-imagined in the light of this growing religious diversity?
