This book is a scholarly defence of the so-called "pluralistic theology of religions" as a viable and most promising Christian theological position. It is written in a style which is accessible to non-specialists but at the same time still attractive to the theological/philosophical expert. It is of interest to all who are concerned with issues arising from the increasingly growing awareness of religious diversity - global as well as local. Recent objections against a pluralistic theology are partly of a philosophical nature and partly of a theological nature. Christian theologians have argued that a Christian theology of religions can be designed which would not only be more consistent with Christian core beliefs but also doing more justice to the factual diversity of religions than the pluralist option. Others hold that Christians can opt for something like "potential pluralism" but are not entitled to go beyond that towards a more affirmative stance. A third group of theologians insist that the whole debate about theology of religions is futile and counterproductive and that theology of religions should be substituted by a "comparative theology" which focuses on concrete issues arising from inter-faith dialogue. Within this context "God Without Limits" discusses the validity of the objections and refines in their light the pluralist approach, thereby defending its philosophical soundness and its theological fruitfulness from a Christian perspective.
