In response, offers a vital perspective and a way of advancing interreligious dialogue, comparative theology argues that theology, as faith seeking understanding, aided rather than hindered by commitments; theological perspectives can both complement and step beyond the study of religions by methods detached and merely neutral.
Some think of theological perspectives are of themselves inherently too narrow to support interreligious learning, and argue for an approach that is neutral or, on a more popular level, grounded simply open-minded direct experience. With this success there has come to the fore new challenges regarding method: how does one do comparative theological work in a way that is theologically grounded, and fruitful on both the academic and practical levels? How To Do Comparative Theology therefore contributes to the maturation of method in the field of comparative theological studies, learning across religious borders, the wisdom of senior scholars, genuinely open to learning from the other, by bringing together essays drawing on different Christian traditions of learning, and also insights from a younger generation of scholars who have studied theology and religion in new ways, Judaism and Islam, sophisticated in pursuing comparisons, Hinduism and Buddhism, and are more attuned to the language of the “spiritual but not religious.
