Overview

Quest for Truth defines the limits of interfaith cooperation, suggests ways in which we can guard against religious propaganda, illustrates how dialogue about ethical choices can affirm mutual respect and reject relativism, and outlines the important choices that need to be made in clarifying the goals of interfaith cooperation. Drawing on experiences gathered over almost a decade of service in his capacity of General Secretary of the International Association of Religious Freedom, his many publications on interfaith cooperation and his multiple addresses to international audiences, Dr. Traer has produced a work that will appeal to anyone involved in, or sharing an interest in, interfaith activities - religious professionals, seminarians, members of the Academy, and lay persons.
