Interreligious Dialogue: A Short Introduction

From the point at which one faith first became aware of an other, there has been inter-religious dialogue: a dialogue that can lead to a positive and rewarding exchange of ide as between different religious traditions, as Martin Forward shows in his lucid introduction to the topic. Drawing on a wide array of sources, this accessible guide examines the past, present and future possibilities of inter-religious dialogue. Covering everything from the global ethic to the position of women in the community, and drawing on the words of individuals from Socrates to John Wesley, Forward examines many of the world faiths and their varying contributions to the field.
