NEW BOOK REVIEWS: INTERRELIGIOUS HERMENEUTICS

Dueling Book Reviews

NEW BOOK REVIEW: FRAGILE IDENTITIES

NEW BOOK REVIEW: DUALITIES

IT’S HERE: Volume 2, Issue 1

It is with great excitement that we publish this second issue of the Journal of Comparative Theology.

Since our premiere issue last year, the field of Comparative Theology has continued to expand, reaching into the far corners of the world. We believe that these four articles offer important perspectives on and forays into this multi-vocal conversation.

Volume 1, Issue 1

It is with great excitement that we publish this premiere issue of the Journal of Comparative Theology.

The subject of this issue was stated in the form of a question: “Why comparative theology today?” This growing field is blossoming for a reason, and we sought input from a variety of voices as to why and how the discipline is taking shape. We believe that the three articles published do so in unique ways.
Theme of the Issue:
Why comparative theology today?
