“How could we get over the monotheistic paradigm for the interreligious dialogue?” by Seung Chul Kim

In this paper I will argue that the Christian theology of religions in an Asian context requires a deconstruction of the theology of interreligious dialogue that has been conducted so far under the conventional typology of “exclusivism, inclusivism, and pluralism.” I think such a typology comes from the monotheistic Christian paradigm. Once that is done, we can begin to explore new theological possibilities emerging from the actual reality of the Asian Christians who have lived in and with the various religious traditions of Asia. I want to find out such a theological possibility in the Hua-yen Buddhist thought.
