The Salvation of Non-Christians: Studies in the Theology of Religions (TH-637)

In the light of the multi-religious and multi-faith worldly context wherein we live today, the questions of how the Christians view other religions and how they view God’s stance on other faiths become of a crucial importance and primary relevance. This course attempts, first, to introduce students to the main exclusivist, inclusivist, and pluralist trends of thought on other religions within the field of study called “theology of religions.” Second, it takes them more specifically into the question of the salvation of the non-Christians and explores with them a possible pneumatological-trinitarian hermeneutics of Christian soteriology that endeavors to exceed the theologically narrow, and seemingly inter-religiously controversial boundaries of Christocentric theology.
