Does my belief actually matter in the dialogue with a person of another religion or denomination? Two often occurring themes within Gavin D'Costa's and Paul Knitter's explorations within the realm of theology of religions are dialogue and the possibility to learn from someone with whom I do not share beliefs. The essay at hand studies how D'Costa and Knitter relate to different, Christian, doctrines in regards to the pluralistic world we are all a part of. The primary focus areas are two of the classics, revelation and salvation. The two theologians have argued their points regarding the threefold typology that has been normative for theology of religions since the last century, namely exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism and their views vary to say the least. However, this essay finishes by asking if one's own beliefs are really relevant when dialogue and mutual learning between religions is what seems to be both the possible and enthusiastic outcome? This essay answers that question with a no, it does not matter. (Less)
