Should a theologian be a critic of religions outside his field of study?
Dr. Schubert Ogden discusses his opinion that it is not theologically productive to criticize or try to change intellectual views that are significantly different from our own. Understanding others is difficult enough without pretending that we “know it all.” Engaging others in often complicated discussions in an effort to learn from them and perhaps move closer to a common understanding is a useful project.
