The history of Christian Thought in the West is not notable for its efforts to come to grips with the claims of other religious traditions, except for the purpose of proselyizatioin, i.e. the concern to save souls. The attitude taken by Christian Churches toward other religions has often been labelled as exclusivism. In its extreme form its attitude has found expression in the assertion that among all peoples of the world, Christians alone have a corner on the truth.
