Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with a core problem between Jews and Christians that disturbs common good, and suggests the beginnings of a remedy for it. The problem is replacement theology: in the context of Jewish-Christian relations, this is the Christian sense that it replaces Judaism as religion required by God of humankind. It is the notion held by many religious people that their interpretation of religious reality replaces all others, within or outside their particular family of faith. Hardly any people draw a line around such a narrow vision of religious truth and place themselves outside, amongst the 'unsaved'. This is one of the weaknesses of such a world view, which is often about power and paranoia more than about truth. Better sense can be made of this issue of replacement theology if we locate it in wider context of world's religions, with a special look at Islam's attitude towards it.

Keywords: Islam's attitude; Jewish-Christian relations; Judaism; religious truth; replacement theology
