When it comes to religious pluralism, John Hick is one of the most ardent and rigorous proponents of the notion that no one religion has a monopoly on the truth. Each religion is a more or less inadequate and imperfect attempt to describe ultimate reality. Ultimately there is no one sacred writing that is perfect or superior to all others. No one great spiritual leader is hands down “better” than any other. Yet John Hick remained an active and practicing Christian his entire life. Critics often argue that Hicks religious pluralism and his Christianity are in conflict. What do you think? Are religious pluralism and basic Christian doctrine compatible? Is Hick’s pluralist hypothesis really “Christian” in your view? Why or why not?
