About the Author

William R. Burrows is research professor of missiology in the world Christianity program at New York Theological Seminary and managing editor emeritus of Orbis Books, Maryknoll, New York.


[This] book provides valuable context and probing insight into two previously unpublished pieces by the late Belgian theologian Jacques Dupuis. Under Burrows's tutelage, Catholics discover in Dupuis's thought ways in which they might continue to hold faith in the unique saving significance of Jesus Christ, while also affirming the deep spiritual wisdom of other religious traditions.
--Richard Gaillardetz, Boston College

By making two previously unpublished texts by Jacques Dupuis available and by reflecting on their context and significance, Burrows contributes significantly to the ongoing search for an adequate Christian theology of religions. Moreover, it demonstrates how a different, genuinely public, mutually attentive, and respectful theological debate could strengthen the development of Roman Catholic approaches to faith, hope, and love today.
--Werner G. Jeanrond, University of Glasgow This book is not simply a thrilling account of the 'inquisition' of a great theologian and proverbial odium theologicum, but also a lucid primer to current Roman Catholic theologies of religions. Not out of prurient interest in ecclesiastical politics, but out of deep love for truth and the church, Burrows makes Dupuis . . . come alive in these pages. It is a must-read for those interested in the future of Catholic theology.
--Peter C. Phan, Georgetown University This is a book full of witness, wisdom, and challenging theological thought. It convincingly argues for deeper comparative theology, further engagement with religious pluralism, and interfaith dialogue at the deepest existential and spiritual level. A truly inspiring read.
--Ursula King, University of Bristol
