Dialog zwischen religiösen Traditionen in einem Zeitalter der Relativität

Übers. v. Shivaun Heath u. Evelyn Krimmer. Hrsg. v. Friedrich Schweitzer

[Dialogue between Religious Traditions in an Age of Relativity.]

Published in German.

Modernity does not necessarily lead to a decline of religion, but to the loss of its taken-for-granted character. Modernity has in fact changed the social and psychological environment of religion. Conversation between adherents of different religious traditions has become an inevitability, not a luxury. In the present text Peter L. Berger seeks to spell out the conditions for such conversation to be both completely open and yet faithful to the core of a tradition. He proposes a basis for useful dialogic engagement among different religious traditions.
