    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish I avhandlingen med titeln Religion in Dialogue with Late Modern Society: A Constructive Contribution to a Christian Spirituality Informed by Buddhist-Christian Encounters ger jag ett konstruktivt bidrag till en kristen spiritualitet för ett senmodernt och mångreligiöst samhälle. Med utgångspunkt i en nutidsanalys med avseende på relationen mellan religion och modernitet utvecklar jag ett spiritualitetsbegrepp där jag menar att en spiritualitet för ett senmodernt och mångreligiöst samhälle lever inom ramen för tre spänningsfält: mellan ’kontinuitet och inre fragmentering’, mellan ’formella och informella strukturer’ samt mellan de två religiösa formerna vita activa och vita contemplativa.
