Religious Pluralism cannot be limited to intellectual circles and scholarly writings;
nor can it be confined within one geographical location or within an era of human history.
Religious Pluralism is a lived-in reality in which one can never overestimate its
influence and impact on human society. This book deals with how one religion can co-exist
and co-relate harmoniously with another in any given location.
The presentation is meant to outshine the importance of Inter-Faith Dialogue which,
being a vast subject, cannot be covered in a single attempt. The book focuses on Eli
Stanley Jones, a 20th century American Methodist Missionary to India and a Theologian, who
through his tireless efforts became one of the pioneers of Inter-Faith Dialogue in India.
When Jones came to India, he began working with the lowest castes, including Dalits, and
also started giving lectures to the educated classes of the then India. It attempts to
highlight how Jones uses "Christ of the Indian Road" effectively to make his
impact on the Indian Theological scene.
