Building Bridges: Interreligious Dialogue on the Path to World Peace
Today more and more people of different religions have the chance to meet. How should they interact with each other so that they foster mutual understanding and respect? What problems might this new world of dialogue create? Will it lead to compromising ones faith? Cardinal Francis Arinze, who has been at the forefront of the Catholic Church's initiatives in interreligious relations for over 20 years, answers these and many other timely questions in this engaging and enlightening interview.
Cardinal Arinze speaks to the veteran practitioner of interreligious dialogue as well as to the hesitant beginner. There is no more articulate or stronger voice for authentic and productive interreligious dialogue than that of Cardinal Arinze. In the face of religious extremism, increased secularism, and the inequities of globalization, collaborative action to address key global challenges is perhaps the best way for religious communities to achieve what Cardinal Arinze describes as the ultimate goal mutual encouragement in our search for God.
What Cardinal Arinze shares in this book is extremely timely and helpful for fostering greater interreligious understanding today, and for guiding religious persons in their common effort toward building peace and justice.
