Pluralism, Exclusivism, and the Boundaries of Biblical Theology
What are the boundaries of pluralism? The Bible offers a rich plurality of ideas about core theological, social, and legal issues.
Benjamin Sommer will explore the limits and opportunities of pluralism using Biblical case studies of divine punishment, divine presence, and monotheism. In addition, we will discuss the paradox of the Bible’s pluralistic treatment of figures like Jeremiah who reject pluralism in the first place.
