Hence, even if it could be that religious apologists of any tradition will be galvanized in light of Nicholsonâs achievements, if they have read him carefully, they will now need to be self-critical about the sociopolitical and rhetorical aspects of whatever interreligious apologetics they might undertake, even as the interdisciplinarity with which he prosecutes his work can undermine any naÃ¯ve efforts in cross-religious justification. As ought to be clear by now, the new comparative theology is being diversified through such undertakings, even as the stakes for comprehending doctrinal normativeness are now even higherânegotiated in interdisciplinary fashion indeedâin the Nicholsonian vein. There will surely be âexpertsâ in these various domainsâthe methodological, the historical, and theological, and so onâwho could counter one or another move, claim, or inference made in these books. Yet because Nicholson hedges his proposals with strategic qualifications and since he has done his homework (about eighty pages of notes follow at the end of each volume), I think his work invites consideration on the bigger questions related to theological and doctrinal construction in the present global era. And here, it will surely be the case that not many will take up the gauntlet on this interdisciplinary
