Meeting Other Believers: The Risks and Rewards of Interreligious Dialogueby Cardinal Francis Arinze
Pub. Date: 09/28/1998
Publisher: Our Sunday Visitor, Publishing Division
With religious plurality a fact of modern life, political, cultural, economic, and spiritual tensions are on the rise. The need for frank and open interreligious dialogue has never been more compelling. With refreshing candor and clarity, Cardinal Francis Arinze demonstrates how dialogue can promote better understanding of our own Faith as well as encouraging common work toward peace and justice and reducing tensions created by misinformation. However, he also honestly addresses the risk of watering down our Faith in pursuit of false universalism, as well as creating an environment in which other faith expressions seem preferable to that of the Catholic Church.
By providing clear, practical guidelines that show how all of us can participate in this dialogue without compromising our own Faith or attacking the faith of others, Cardinal Arinze explains how each of us can help create an atmosphere in which the peace God calls us to live in can flourish. "Often hearts meet before heads", he succinctly states.
A forceful, unforgettable presentation of one of the most complex and important topics facing the Church in the next decades.
