Transforming Interreligious Relations
By: Leo D. Lefebure
Against the background of the Catholic Church's global organizations and activities in interreligious dialogue, this book focuses on recent Roman Catholic engagement with other religious traditions in the United States, and the significance of this experience of religious pluralism for Christian theology. Each relationship has a distinctive set of challenges, problems, and opportunities. In each relationship, Christians have come to new insights into their scriptures, their traditions, their practices and beliefs. Each relationship has implications for other interreligious relationships and for Christian identity.
