Twenty-First Century Theologies of Religions, a new book co-authored by friend and previous GRASSROOTS team member, Shanthikumar Hettiarachchi, is being launched on 5th October 2016.

Within Christian theology, debates on the theology of religions have intensified over the last thirty or so years. This book surveys the field and maps future directions in this expanding and important area of research.

Both established experts and new voices address typological debates, comparative theology, multiple religious belonging or identity, and how dialogue between different religious traditions affects our understanding of these issues. Different perspectives and traditions are represented, and, while focusing upon debates in Christian theology, voices and perspectives from a range of religious traditions are also included. This book is an essential tool for research students and established scholars working within the theology of religions and interreligious studies.

The book launch is taking place at the Ecumenical Institute for Study and Dialogue (EISD), 490/5 Havelock Rd. Colombo 6, Sri Lanka, on Wednesday 5th October 2016 at 4.30 pm. Whilst this launch is being held overseas, copies of the book are available in the UK.
