Discover the Power of Dialogue to Heal Religious Division

How can members of different faith traditions approach each other with openness and respect? How can they confront the painful conflicts in their history and overcome theological misconceptions? For more than twenty years, Professors Mary C. Boys and Sara S. Lee have explored ways that Catholics and Jews might overcome mistrust and misunderstandings in order to promote commitment to religious pluralism.

At its best, interreligious dialogue entails not simply learning about the other from the safety of one’s own faith community, but rather engaging in specific learning activities with members of the other faith―learning in the presence of the other. Drawing upon examples from their own experience, Boys and Lee lay out a framework for engaging the religious other in depth. With vision and insight, they discuss ways of fostering relationships among participants and with key texts, beliefs and practices of the other’s tradition.

In this groundbreaking resource, they offer a guide for members of any faith tradition who want to move beyond the rhetoric of interfaith dialogue and into the demanding yet richly rewarding work of developing new understandings of the religious other―and of one’s own tradition.

From the Inside Flap:

Dialogue between faith traditions is crucial in our religiously diverse world. If dialogue is to heal religious division, it must involve learning about the religious other--and this learning is most transformative when done in the other's presence. In this book, Mary C. Boys and Sara S. Lee reflect upon what some twenty years of facilitating dialogue between Jews and Catholics have taught them. Their experience in helping members of both faiths to deepen their own religious identity and to face the limitations and failures of their respective traditions offers a model for fostering religious pluralism.

This book is not only for Catholics and Jews, but for anyone seeking to nurture authentic dialogue between different faith traditions.

About the Author:

Mary C. Boys' books include Jewish-Christian Dialogue: One Woman's Experience; Has God Only One Blessing? Judaism as a Source of Christian Self-Understanding and Christians & Jews in Dialogue Learning in the Presence of the Other (SkyLight Paths). She is the Skinner and McAlpin Professor of Practical Theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary and chairs the Christian Scholars Group on Christian-Jewish Relations.
