Dialogue: The Church and the Voice of the Other. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This book examines the Church's communicative practices prior to the convening of the Second Vatican Council and after, focusing particularly on the Church's understanding of - dialogue. By developing the paradigm of Praxis Religious Dialogue, this book, through the dialogical philosophy of Martin Buber, the incarnational ethics of Emmanuel Levinas, and the theologico-anthropological process of cognition of Bernard Lonergan, offers a new form of dialogue for the Church. This new model of dialogue is embedded in the process of aggiornamento that served as instrumentum laboris for the Second Vatican Council's deliberations."
