His authority and truths apply to every area. To an unprecedented extent, members of the various faiths are today in conversation, seeking to learn new things from one another. Today, most Christian theologians have rejected, at least in principle, a purely exclusivist approach which would deny the revelatory value of other religions.

Universal Religion and Religious Diversity

Beliefs cannot change a truth statement no matter how sincere one may be• If a church which claims that its ecclesiastical faith is universally binding is called a catholic church, and if that which protests against such claims on the part of others even though oftentimes it would gladly advance similar claims itself, if it could is called a protestant church, an alert observer will come upon many laudable examples of Protestant Catholics and, on the other hand, still more examples, and offensive ones, of arch-catholic Protestants: the first, men of a cast of mind even though it is not that of their church leading to self-expansion; to which the second, with their circumscribed cast of mind, stand in sharp contrast — not at all to their own advantage.

It is certainly not Absolute revelation and universal religion as an adequate account, but it does offer a rather novel perspective, and it is one that we shall draw on at other points in the present book.
