Abstract: Religious conflict and prejudice are two of the most critical issues facing the world today as it stands at the threshold of a new millennium. This book offers the reader a new understanding of religious pluralism and the issues associated with this subject: diversity and unity of religions, absoluteness and relativity of truth. New Age (new offers of salvation) and interfaith dialogue. Above all, a new theological paradigm is presented, that of a cyclically recurring progressive revelation.
