Human Responsibility in Salvation: Understanding Christian Soteriology in a Hindu Context is an important conversational theological work. Unlike many books in the area of systematic theology, where one question is followed consistently and argued out pointedly, this book offers an exercise in dogmatic theological hermeneutics. Dr. Joseph Oliparambil is making an effort to understand Christian soteriology in a Hindu context.

Dr. Oliparmabil is addressing the question of human responsibility in salvation in a real inter-religious and intra-religious context where Christians and Hindus have different and sometimes similar views on the same. What is achieved in this work is a renewed pre-understanding for doing Christian, Hindu, and Hindu-Christian theologies of salvation. The author has consulted a wide variety of literature in the field of Christian soteriology, Hinduism, inter-religious hermeneutics and comparative theology. This book is an elaborate preface to any Christian theology of salvation done in an Indian context.
