Publisher's Description

In On Religious Diversity Robert McKim distinguishes and examines a number of possible responses to the knowledge of diverse religious traditions that is available to all of us today. There is no escaping the fact that the presence of competing traditions now confronts each of the traditions in a new and forceful way. And there is widespread if inchoate recognition of genuine religious sensibilities and genuine religious seriousness in others. How might, and how should, an awareness of other traditions affect a member of a particular religious tradition? What attitudes should be taken to the beliefs and salvific prospects of members of other traditions? McKim examines several proposed answers to these questions, offering the deepest analysis to date of such options as exclusivism and inclusivism. He argues that what look like well-defined and discrete positions dissolve somewhat under scrutiny, revealing significantly different possibilities. McKim suggests where best to look for the most plausible answers and makes a case for the attractiveness of inclusivistic options. He pays particular attention to the religiously ambiguous nature of our circumstances and to the implications of this ambiguity.

Editorial Reviews

"On Religious Diversity is an outstanding treatment of the morass of terms surrounding the philosophical discussion of religious diversity and its epistemological implications. It does excellent work in applying these distinctions to the philosophical issues, and is a natural sequel to McKim's previous book with Oxford."
--Jerome Gellman, Professor of Philosophy, Ben Gurion University of the Negev

"McKim's lucid and helpful book is a valuable addition to the growing body of literature on religious diversity and its implications for religious belief."
--William J. Wainwright, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

"A book devoted to the various epistemological appraoches to religious diversity [such as McKim's] is to be welcomed." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
