John Hick: A Philosopher of Religion’s Engagement with Racial Issues – Sharada Sugirtharajah

John Hick was an eminent academic and scholar, who has been
described by his colleagues as “one of the most – if not simply the
most – significant philosopher of religion in the twentieth century”
and “the greatest living philosopher of global religion”.
At University during the Second World War he converted to
Evangelical Christianity, but when called up for military service he
became a conscientious objector on moral grounds and joined the
Friends Ambulance Unit.
In later life he moved away from his early beliefs and became a
powerful advocate of religious pluralism.
He was a member of the URC for many years before becoming
a Quaker in 2009, three years before his death at the age of ninety.
