Abstract

Throughout the world, cultural and religious diversity leads to various forms of hybrid religiosity, which is increasingly being investigated from the paradigm of multiple religious belonging (MRB). This chapter first discusses MRB as a phenomenon and then as a discourse. Consequently, it focuses on dual Buddhist-Christian belonging, which has received the most attention within theological discourses on MRB. It then discusses MRB in a global context, taking into account the criticism of Paul Hedges of what he calls “the World Religions Paradigm,” in which religious traditions are seen as entities with fixed borders, and belonging to each is seen as exclusive. This chapter concludes with a brief discussion of the challenges that the phenomenon of MRB offers for the field of comparative theology.
