Publisher's Description

How can the world's many religions overcome ideological differences and come together to promote understanding, justice and peace? In this groundbreaking volume, James L. Heft and fifteen other leading scholars of the world's major religions show how to answer this crucial question.

Structured as a scholarly dialogue, Catholicism and Interreligious Dialogue contains essays by five Catholic scholars who have committed to extensive study of and dialogue with another world religion. Each scholar presents an assessment of the present state of interreligious dialogue between the Catholic Church and practitioners of a a particular faith, including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. These assessments are followed by critical responses from two scholars of the tradition under discussion, as well as concluding comments from the Catholic scholar who offered the assessment.

Editorial Reviews


"In bringing together prominent Catholic theologians who have been engaged in prolonged dialogue with particular religious traditions, this book offers a rich taste of the very different flavors of interreligious dialogue. Each religion indeed presents its own challenges and opportunities for Christian theological reflection. In allowing for responses by scholars belonging to the respective traditions, the book moreover engages in actual dialogue, or in a dialogue about dialogue."---Catherine Cornille, author of The Im-Possibility of Interreligious Dialogue


"[An] excellent work in collaboration...strongly recommend the volume to both Christians and members of other religions who wish to understand the background and current challenges for Catholics in their present dialogue and interaction with the adherents of other
major faiths."--Theological Studies
