Abstract

How can the world’s many religions overcome ideological differences and come together to promote understanding, justice, and peace? This book shows how to answer this crucial question. The book contains chapters by five Catholic scholars who have committed to the extensive study of and dialogue with another world religion. Each chapter presents an assessment of the present state of interreligious dialogue between the Catholic Church and practitioners of a particular faith, including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. These assessments are followed by critical responses from two scholars of the tradition under discussion, as well as concluding comments from the Catholic scholar who offered the assessment.
