Der eine Gott und die anderen Götter
Eine historische und systematische Einführung in Religionstheologien der Ökumene.
(The one God and the other deities – An historical and systematic introduction to theologies of religions of the ecumene)
Dr. Martin Repp
The main thesis of this book is that theologies of religion dominating the contemporary discussion, such as exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism, fail to maintain the tension between cosmology (creation theology) and soteriology (e.g. Christology) which constitute the two fundamental pillars of the Christian faith.
