"Exclusive claims isolate the community of faith from neighbors of other faiths, creating tensions and disturbin relationships within the larger community. But when the distinctiveness of a particular faith is stated in a manner that avoids open or hidden exclusiveness, then meaningfull relationships between different communities become possible. This has been happening throughout history of different religions in the multireligious life of India. It is unfortunate that Christian theologians, including Indians, have failed to recognize the significance of such relationships for the shaping of an emerging theology of religions."---Quote from chapter seven of Asian Faces of Jesus edited by R.S. Sugirtharajah. 267 pages from Orbis Books.
