What others are saying


Interfaith Dialogue in Practice“ … a timely and strategically important volume. Interfaith Dialogue in Practice discloses a human hope where multiple religious traditions can inform one another without ignoring the vitality and authority of individual religious beliefs.”

RONALD C. ARNETT is a professor of communication and rhetorical studies at Duquesne University and author of Communication Ethics in Dark Times: Hannah Arendt’s Rhetoric of Warning and Hope.

Interfaith Dialogue in Practice is an important contribution to the emerging field of interfaith studies. The voices of religious intolerance and conflict are loud. This book will help the voices of interfaith leaders be more effective and reach a wider audience.”

EBOO PATEL is founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core and author of Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice, and the Promise of America.

“The analyses, guidelines, anecdotes, and case studies in this volume give us help from scholars whose expertise is in the very field we need most: communication. Interfaith Dialogue in Practice brings us more than mere trinkets from an unfamiliar land; it offers entrance into the precious spiritual core of other human beings, and thereby unlocks regions in our own souls hitherto unexplored.”

—VERN BARNET is founder of The Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council and columnist for The Kansas City Star.

“The strength of Interfaith Dialogue in Practice comes through the voices of religious practitioners who are deeply committed to their own faith traditions.  If ever there was a need to put into action the skills discussed in this book it is now."
