With more than twenty years of teaching and research experience, Pim Valkenberg is an advocate of combining book learning with experiential and service learning as methods of teaching about religious others. World Religions in Dialogue models this beyond-the-book understanding of the four major non-Christian world religions through insider and outsider perspectives and analysis of sacred text excerpts by Christian scholars and scholars of the Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and Jewish religions. Enhanced with glossaries and full-color photographs throughout, World Religions in Dialogue also encourages experiential learning through its thought-provoking questions for discussion and further research.

About the Author:

Pim Valkenberg is a professor of religion and culture in the School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. His most recent book, in English, is Sharing Lights on the Way to God: Muslim-Christian Dialogue and Theology in the Context of Abrahamic Partnership (2006).

Review:

"World Religions in Dialogue is that unique textbook which combines competent introduction, accessibility, and a thoughtful dialogue of insiders and outsiders in conversation. It will be a much-appreciated text for the introductory course on world religions, showing both the what of religions and the how of learning religions in an ongoing conversation."
--Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Harvard University
"The great strength of this rich, interesting book is that it offers the perspective of both an 'outsider' and an 'insider' for Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. In the interplay between the two viewpoints, these world religions are illuminated in a fresh way. The review questions, glossaries, and annotated bibliographies that conclude each section offer the reader the opportunity to solidify what has been learned and explore more deeply. Even in a library already stocked with world religions textbooks, this one stands out as a worthy addition."
--Kristin Johnston Largen, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg
