pp. xi-xxvi

Raimundo Alemany Panikkar (1918–2010)—or as he is more widely known today, Raimon Panikkar—lived, wrote, and taught on three continents over an astoundingly long period, stretching from roughly the close of World War I until the first decade of the twenty-first century. ...

pp. 1-34

This chapter exposits and evaluates Panikkar’s Christology of religions from the beginning of his publishing career until the first edition of the Unknown Christ of Hinduism in 1964.1 Unlike his later thought, which is more consistent on a host of philosophical and theological issues, a close look at his early christological writing ...

pp. 121-160

Raimon Panikkar presents many non-Catholic readers with a set of challenging theological and inter-religious options. What follows in this chapter intends to affirm, to interact with and, in places, to complement and even expand aspects of Panikkar’s thought.1 Apart from occasional hints, critical comment is reserved for the next chapter. ...

5. The Great Tradition Ruptured? A Constructive Interaction and Critique

Bob Robinson

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 161-214

Before further engagement with Panikkar’s thought, it is important to note one problem presented by the reality that Panikkar’s large body of writing spans a period in excess of fifty years: any attempted summary or survey is difficult, given the evolving nature of his thought. The difficulty is compounded by one of the logically prior ...

6. A Concluding Dialogue about Panikkar between the Authors

Erik Ranstrom, Bob Robinson

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 215-238

There were more than several instances in the preceding chapters of recognizing in the style and sensibility of a colleague from the Protestant tradition an echo of my own perspective, although I will save ecumenical insights for the next sections. Bob’s well-formulated summary of the objections against christocentrism as a theological ...
