Who is Kenneth Cracknell?

Kenneth R. Cracknell is a British specialist in interfaith dialogue and the Christian theology of religions.

Cracknell has written many articles and books on interfaith dialogue and other subjects, including Towards a New Relationship, Justice Courtesy and Love, An Introduction to World Methodism, and In Good and Generous Faith. A festschrift, A Great Commission edited by Martin Forward, et al., includes scholarly articles by numerous friends and colleagues on the occasion of Cracknell's 65th birthday. He has pioneered a sensitive and respectful Christian approach to the religious Other while dealing skillfully with Bible verses that for some demand a total condemnation of other religions and the conversion of their followers. Wesley S. Ariarajah, former director of inter-religions relations at the World Council of Churches describes Cracknell's discussion as "a probing exegesis of the apparently exclusive verses."
