Abstract
How do you respond to those who say all religions are the same? Rev. Dr. David Tracy discusses how all religions, although they do respond to what he labels as “limit questions”, are not the same. Because their answers to such these questions are so dramatically different, they must be studied and understood individually, and not reduced to a common denominator.
