A Practical Guide for Embracing the Growing Religious Pluralism in America

"In the process of [interfaith] engagement, we discover ... a world in which our faith is richer, deeper, and more contextualized, and God's very Self is seen in more of its fullness."
―from the Introduction

This practical guide to the key methods and resources of the interfaith movement will help you effectively engage people of other faith traditions in order to increase understanding and acceptance in your community and beyond.

Drawing on the knowledge and experience of interfaith leaders from the world's many faith traditions―Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Bahá'í Faith, Jainism, Shinto, Sikh Faith, Taoism, Zoroastrianism―this comprehensive resource provides practical ideas for connecting with people of all faiths and backgrounds through common concerns and activities that promote respect and support. It enables communities rich with diversity to work together to create paths toward peace and justice.

About the Author:

Rev. Bud Heckman is an ordained United Methodist clergyman from Ohio, currently serving as the chief development officer at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut, a unique theological school that
focuses on interreligious dialogue and enjoys a diverse student body of Christians, Muslims and Jews. He is the former executive director of Religions for Peace-USA, where he started as a consultant working with local U.S. communities on interfaith issues. He delights in the relationships established with fellow contributors during these times.

Review:

"Provides vital [information] on how interreligious dialogue can be developed on a community level. Contributors ... share valuable insights in a very readable fashion."
John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, PhD, professor of social ethics and director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, Catholic Theological Union; president, International Council of Christians and Jews

"A critical resource for those leading their communities past intolerance and fear into hope, understanding, and social change. Inspires the reader while providing cutting-edge methods to help communities build trust and celebrate our diversity and common goals."
Rev. Jennifer Butler, executive director, Faith in Public Life

"A wonderful handbook that should be on the bookshelf of every member of the clergy. It provides practical and inspirational resources for communal interfaith programming."
Rabbi Leonard A. Schoolman, director, The Center for Religious Inquiry, Saint Bartholomew's Church, New York; author, The Changing Christian World: A Brief Introduction for Jews

“Shows how practically dialogue can deepen our understanding and practice of our own faith traditions and at the same time help us to develop an understanding and respect for the faith traditions of others.”
Dr. Sayyid M. Syeed, national director, Interfaith and Community Alliance, Islamic Society of North America

“A book that can make a dramatic difference. Will enable communities to think constructively about religious difference in conversation across the divides. Anyone seriously interested in dialogue and peace between the different religious traditions must read this book.”
The Very Rev. Ian Markham, PhD, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary

“A must read for those of us involved in national faith-based organizations and an excellent guide for working in our local communities. It has a wealth of background information and a very useful resource section. The guidelines for language use is very important for our dialogue in multifaith groups. Our communication colleagues will find this a very important book to have in their libraries for reference.”
Shirley Whipple Struchen, executive director, Religion Communicators Council
