About This Book

Overview

In our globalized world, two common options for dealing with distinct cultures, religions, and mores are to isolate ourselves from the diversity around us or to become capable of intercultural cooperation and interreligious understanding.

In Interreligious Dialogue: An Anthology of Voices Bridging Cultural and Religious Divides, editor Christoffer Hinrich Grundmann collects crucial essays on interreligious dialogue and places them side by side, effectively making Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist thinkers widely accessible. With concern for the practical, this anthology provides firsthand accounts of how interreligious dialogue works and looks. Grundmann offers short, contextual introductions for each new author, as well as a list of related internet resources at the conclusion of each article in order to facilitate the kind of deep learning required in this highly globalized world.
