About the Author

Michelle Voss Roberts is Professor of Theology and Principal at Emmanuel College, a multireligious theological school at the University of Toronto. Her published work in comparative theology includes Dualities: A Theology of Difference (2010), Tastes of the Divine: Hindu and Christian Theologies of Emotion (2014), and Body Parts: A Theological Anthropology (2017). With Chad Bauman, she is also the editor of the Routledge Handbook of Hindu-Christian Relations.


"Advances the burgeoning field of comparative theology. Voss Roberts hones in on how theologians read closely and respectfully the texts and ideas of other traditions, making themselves vulnerable to their insights; and consider whether rational accounts of their own faith could be substantively enriched by encounters with those others, without cannibalizing or appropriating them." -- -James W. Farwell Virginia Theological Seminary
