This essay contends that a generic category of alternative salvations reflects a modern Euro-American colonizing and universalizing tendency. In contrast, 'salvation' may usefully be shrunk back to its context within the Western tradition of Christian theology. Within this local tradition understandings of salvation have been strongly contested. Renewed theologies of universal salvation have emerged in evangelical, Catholic and feminist theologies. Shrinking these theologies back to their local context facilitates dialogue between these traditioned voices and partners within world Christianity, interreligious encounter, and detraditioned secular Western groups. Such traditioned openness provides an alternative to the aggressive mission that arises from over-exuberant conviction of a dual destiny in the eschaton.
