Religious pluralism is a key challenge facing theologians and religious communities today. It raises questions regarding how practitioners and believers from different traditions do and should encounter one another as they enter into substantial and regular contact in every part of the world. Careful reflection on the meaning of religious pluralism for religious faith is an increasingly important and necessary theological task. Comparative theology involves faith seeking understanding within the horizon of religious plurality.
