About-

What does Jesus have to do with Buddha? What does Muhammad have to do with Krishna? One of the most important tasks for theology in the twenty-first century is interreligious dialogue. Given the rapid process of globalization and the surge of information via the Internet, travel, and library networking today, interreligious dialogue has become a necessary element within Christian theology that no longer can be avoided. Evangelization as Interreligious Dialogue features eleven essays, plus an extensive introduction, that exercise a live conversation between religious others. Divided into four thematic sections—(1) Catholic approaches to interreligious dialogue, (2) dialogues between Judaism and Christianity, (3) dialogues between Islam and Christianity, and (4) dialogues between Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity—this volume conducts a sustained theological reflection on the current state of interreligious dialogue by signaling its hopeful promises and unrelenting challenges. The reader will be invited to encounter the religious other firsthand and put his or her most cherished theological assumptions to the test. This book aims to provoke an expansion of horizons for theological imagination as it exposes the basic dialectic of identity and difference as played out in the interaction between diverse religious beliefs, practices, and experiences.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This volume offers compelling arguments for the possible or necessary synergy between proclamation of the truth of one’s own religion and dialogue with other religious traditions. It demonstrates that it is only through sincere and open grappling with often conflicting claims to truth that dialogue will lead to mutual edification and genuine theological growth.”

—Catherine Cornille, Boston College



“Vatican II is now several generations behind us, but we are still catching up to its new understanding of the church, the world, and the world’s many religions. Evangelization as Interreligious Dialogue, perched between actualities of interreligious dialogue and the needed renovation of Catholicism’s theology of religions, adds another voice to the needed Catholic conversation that must precede the interreligious learning to follow. Naysayers—Catholic and in other traditions—scoff at the very idea of interreligious learning, but this solid collection shows that it will only gather speed over time, to the benefit of believers in every tradition.”

—Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Harvard University



Evangelization as Interreligious Dialogue is an invitation to take risks—to risk full commitment to our traditions, to risk ourselves and our commitments in authentic dialogue.  Not sure it is possible to do both with integrity? Start here.”

—Reid B. Locklin, University of Toronto
