400 Book Reviews / International Journal of Public Th eology 3 (2009) 391–412 Jerald D. Gort, Henry Jansen, Hendrik M. Vroom, eds, Religions View Religions: Explo- rations in Pursuit of Understanding (Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi, 2006), pp. 372, £54.00, ISBN 978-90-420-1858-7 (pbk). In increasingly pluralist societies, in which competing religious and moral values inter- act with political, economic and other public issues at global and local levels, interre- ligious dialogue and partnerships are gradually becoming a basic requirement rather than a mere civility. Th e simple fact of religious plurality in contemporary society imposes the need for genuine and critical reﬂ ection on the truth claims, values and practices of other religions, and on the impact that the resulting understanding of the religious other has on our self-understanding. Religions View Religions is an impressive contribution to the ﬁ eld of religious studies and to contemporary discussions of inter- religious dialogue and comparative theology of religions. Th e Religions View Religions symposium volume consists of chapters resulting from an international and interreli- gious workshop organized by members of the Encounter of Religious Traditions Research Group within the Faculty of Th eology of the Free University of Amsterdam.
