This book analyzes the writings of Karl Rahner, Karl Barth and Vedanta Desika to disclose how each construes “piety” and “responsibility” as integral to each other. Each theologian expresses a fundamental unity of love of God and love of neighbour. Sheveland explores this unity in ecumenical and interreligious frameworks, showing how these authors privilege theology as practice, enactment, or simply as ethical. He uses the Renaissance genre of musical polyphony as a methodological tool to investigate the aesthetic quality and the similarity-in-difference of the theological voices being compared.
