Product Description

Collisions of faiths are among the most threatening conflicts around the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century. In the face of these conflicts, this manifesto is a call to embrace religious pluralism. Tackling people's fears of religious pluralism, the author demonstrates that citizens, religions, and identities can in fact survive in radically pluralist settings. He argues that the first address to communities involved in collisions of faith should not be the conventional plea for tolerance, but a call that at least one party risk hospitality toward the other. When Faiths Collide deals with conflicts that affect or occur within those nations whose polities can be called republican, open, democratic, liberal, or free, particularly the UK, the US, and Western Europe.

Editorial Reviews

"When I teach courses at this level I always include religious diversity. Martin Marty's recent text, When Faiths Collide, provides a good entry into this topic on three fronts: by drawing on history, theology, scripture and the intersection of religion with politics, medicine and other fields, Marty reinforces my claim to students that our discipline is polymethodical."
Journal of Teaching Theology and Religion <!--end-->

“This is a marvellous accomplishment… When Faiths Collide is an original and fresh contribution to the discussion of religious “otherness” (the stranger in our midst) as it has unfolded in the aftermath of September 11.” Scott Appleby, University of Notre Dame

“An essential read.” Journal of Religion

“In his typically comprehensive way, Martin Marty kindly gives all sides a hearing, eager to make sure every position is fairly represented with its nuance.”
