    Abstract

    Piero Coda is one of Italy's most prolific theologians. As a leading and distinctive voice in theology, his contribution to the construction of a theology of religions and inter-religious dialogue has received positive appraisal. This short article attempts to show how Coda's work prompts reflection on Jesus Christ, the Word of God, as the eschatological "place" of encounter and recapitulation of all human beings, cultures and religions in a relational being-directed-towards-one-another (cf. Col 1:16). Ultimately, Coda sees his theology of religions located within a kerygma-kenosis polarity involving both a being/non-being, word/silence, fullness/nothingness, that is inherent in the human vocation itself as revealed in Christianity's relational-Trinitarian ontology of love.
