What is German Protestant Theology Saying About the Non- Christian Religions?

Rev. Paul K n i t t e r , S. V. D., Dr. Theol. Des., Catholic Theological Union 5401 South Cornell Ave., Chicago, 111. 60615 The following study hopes to serve äs a Stimulus to an ecumenical Christian Theology of the Religions by asking whether and how one segment of that theology is confronting the »other religions«. We will offer -- from a »Catholic viewpoint« -- a survey of present-day German Protestant attitudes towards the religions and weigh how these attitudes are clarifying the questions which are essential to a well-defined theology of the non- Christian religious world and to a theological dialogue with this world: What, if any, role do the religions play in the »history of salvation«? Can we speak of a genuine divine presence or revelation within the religions? And can this revelation be the basis for a faith-encounter with the Deity -- i. e., for the attainment of salvation? -- Or, more generally: must the Christian's attitude toward and encounter with other religions be basically positive or negative? And why? -- What stance do contemporary German-speaking Protestant theologians take to all these questions?1 Present State of German-Protestant Theology of Religions 1.
