In the post-9/11 situation, the world faces even more tension and conflict between religious faiths. This timely book fills a gap by exploring and expounding the full scope of the positive teaching by the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) on other living faiths. It illustrates how the bishops who met for that council, while maintaining their full faith in Jesus Christ as the universal Revealer and Saviour, acknowledged how God's light and life are also mediated to
those of other religions. This work combines high standards of scholarship with the accessible style that readers of earlier books of O'Collins will recognize. This latest work by O'Collins will be of
great service not only to students of religious studies but also to all engaged, officially or unofficially, in interfaith dialogue.
