Statement of Purpose

People who engage in serious study beyond their own tradition frequently find revelation, enlightenment, or insight into ultimate reality in multiple traditions.In light of this experience, restricting theology to the articulation of truths within one’s own tradition seems unduly restricted.

If we are to learn all we can about the ultimate reality, we need a theology that takes all sources of revelation, enlightenment, and insight into account, without (to the extent possible) privileging our own. Theology Without Walls is a cooperative, constructive, trans-religious theological project that attempts to do just that.
