Many Yet One?
While we tend to think of religions as distinct, univocal, even competing traditions, the phenomenon of multiple religious belonging is widespread, both historically and today. Alive to a variety of traditions and regions, this book explores the reality of religious hybridity (whether because of cultural inheritance, family circumstances, or explicit choice), its confounding of traditional categories in theology and the study of religion, and its meaning for Christian theology. In its examination of religious identity, the book enriches an understanding of the whole range of practices by which humans relate to it. [Subject: Religious Studies, Christianity]
