Monotheism and Monopoly: A Match Made in Heaven or a Marriage of Convenience?

Svartvik, Jesper LU (2004) In Swedish Missiological Themes 92(3). p.427-461
Abstract
The article explores the relation between monotheism and intolerance: are monotheistic religions more "intolerant" than are non-monotheistic religions? Is monothesim per definitionem exclusive and intolerant? The article seeks to indicate some of the ways in which monotheistic belief can both hinder and further improved interreligious relations. To what extent do monotheists today take responsibility for how they articulate their responses to the ultimate questions?
