This original and ambitious book considers the terms of engagement between Christian theology and other religious traditions, beginning with criticism of Christian theology of religions as entangled with European colonial modernity. Jenny Daggers covers recent efforts to disentangle Eurocentrism from the meeting of the religions, and investigates new constructive possibilities arising in the postcolonial context. In dialogue with Asian and feminist theologies, she reflects on ways forward for relations between the religions and offers a particularist model for theology of religions, standing within a classical Trinitarian framework.

Jenny Daggers is Associate Professor in Christian Theology at Liverpool Hope University, UK. She is author of The British Christian Women’s Movement (Ashgate, 2002) and editor of Gendering Christian Ethics (CSP, 2012).Review:
"For those interested in Christian engagement with religious others, this book is highly recommended. Daggers asks whether we can hope for a Christian theology of religions that might break free of Eurocentricism and its white supremacist legacy. Her proposal of a particularist Trinitarian model is worthy of our consideration. The work is theoretically sound, historically engaging and theologically innovative. A real challenge to the field." - Jeannine Hill Fletcher, Fordham University, USA
"Daggers offers a Trinitarian theology of religions that is no longer complicit with a problematic Euro-American Christian colonial legacy, and that challenges pluralist claims that postliberal theology must necessarily isolate the religions into solipsistic silos. This ambitious book is must reading for all who care about theology of religions, a field often pronounced dead, but, as Daggers demonstrates, remains very much alive." - John J. Thatamanil, Union Theological Seminary, USA
"This book presents a fresh, challenging postcolonial theology of religions in engagement with feminist and Asian theologies. Daggers depicts and comments on vast areas of literature related to her theme." - Gavin D'Costa, University of Bristol, UK
