The editor, Michelle Voss Roberts, introduces the history and methods of comparative theology and argues for its importance in the study of systematics. The essays in the volume represent the best practices of comparative theology, exciting new approaches to it, and fresh perspectives on familiar topics in Christian systematic theology. The introduction suggests four uses for the volume: 1) as a way into Christian systematic theology; 2) as a way to test theological categories; 3) as proposals for doctrinal reflection; and 4) as an invitation to the reader to take up the activity of comparative reading.
