World Faiths Encounter
Religion and Philosophy
"The most urgent task of theology today, some noted thinkers argue ,1 is to construct a universal theology of religion. '[S]uch a theology' writes A K Min, 'seeks to translate the central insights of one's own faith and those of others into an 'ecumenical Esperanto,'i.e., universally intelligible concepts... images and symbols based on common human experience... (the latter being) not only the source of universal theology but also its critical norm.'2 It is in light of this task that the following reflection on the notion of cosmic order is undertaken." ~ from the article
Novak, Philip, "Universal Theology and the Idea of Cosmic Order" (1992). Collected Faculty and Staff Scholarship. 128.
