About this book
A selection of themes from the two religions of Hinduism and Christianity, chosen to highlight the central concerns of both, while not neglecting their internal diversity and also maintaining a balance between doctrine and practice, in order to compare like with like. The themes addressed are the nature of the divine, divine interaction with mankind, authority and mediation, devotionalism and personal piety, meditation and asceticism, social values and morality, and teleology; the final chapter then outlines the history of contact and dialogue between the two religions. Although the treatment is thematic, the process of historical development is given due attention.
