Religious Diversity in the Shadow of Ambiguity
This chapter deals with some aspects of the implications of religious ambiguity for how one should respond to the fact of religious diversity. A case is made for trying to understand the point of view of others on matters of religious significance and for an exploratory and curious approach that involves an attempt to learn about others and their traditions, history, perspectives, experiences, and so on. On the matter of salvation, the possibility of giving expression to a recognition of religious ambiguity by withholding judgment on the salvation of outsiders is considered. The chapter concludes with some examination of the implications for how an object of worship might be conceived of.
