From the Back Cover:

In recent decades, the notion of dialogue has become increasingly common in describing the proper relationship between religions. Rather than competing with one another over territories, converts, or claims, religions have generally come to adopt a more conciliatory and constructive attitude toward one another, collaborating in social projects and exchanging views on common religious questions. This uniquely comprehensive volume brings together a distinguished editorial team, including some of the field’s pioneers, to explore the aims, practice, and historical context of inter-religious dialogue. It explores the links between a multitude of faiths around the world, from Shinto to Mormonism, separated either by geography or by their disparate ideas and practices.

The companion examines a range of broad developments and issues including the history of dialogue, its pre-conditions, the relationship between dialogue and social action, and peace-building. It combines this with a range of specific case studies exploring interactions between faiths. These faith-groups include Christians and Confucians, Muslims and the adherents of Africa’s diverse faiths, and Jews and Hindus, amongst others. Including up-to-date commentary on the growing engagement in recent years, it explores in full the important channels of communication now open between the scholars and practitioners of the world’s religions.

About the Author:

Catherine Cornille is Professor of Comparative Theology at Boston College, USA, where she chairs the department of Theology and runs symposia on interreligious discourse. Professor Cornille is a widely published authority in this field, whose books include Many Mansions? Multiple Religious Belonging and Christian Identity (2002), The Im-Possibility of Interreligious Dialogue (2008) and Interreligious Dialogue and Cultural Change (2012).
