This book raises theological questions about the salvific meaning of
suffering in the light of Mt.25:31-46. Taking the oppressed women of Maher
(NGO, Pune, India) as its starting point the book highlights the
significance of Christ from socio-economic-religious perspective. This is
done by presenting the Christological contributions of two leading
theologians of India, namely Samuel Rayan and Raimon Panikkar with the aim
of presenting Christ relevantly in the multi-religious context. Since
suffering is unavoidable, the author proposes that teachings like Kenosis
(self-emptying) and Nishkama Karma (selfless action) can help believers of
diverse belief-traditions to cope with suffering.
