"Through their varied concerns and resources, the theoretical essays provide readers with excellent starting points for
discussion on how Christian monotheism should and must respond to questions of exclusivity, power relations, and violence. [...] Overall, The Boundaries of Monotheism is a valuable resource for theological reflection on the
limits of Christian monotheism in the face of various scriptural, historical, and cultural challenges."
Bradley B. Onishi, University of California Santa Barbara, Reviews in Religion and Theology, 18:4 (2011).
