Stories of Interreligious Encounter, Growth and Transformation
Leading writers from many religious traditions describe moments of transformation and growth through encounters with people and practices of other religious traditions.
We live in the most religiously diverse society in the history of humankind.
Every day, people of different religious beliefs and practices encounter one another in a
myriad of settings. How has this new situation of religious diversity impacted the way we understand the religious “other,” ourselves, and God? Can we learn to live together with mutual respect, working together for the creation of a more compassionate and just world?
My Neighbor’s Faith gathers an array of inspiring and penetrating stories about the interreligious encounters of outstanding community leaders, scholars, public intellectuals, and activists. With wisdom, wit, courage, and humility, these writers—from a range of religious backgrounds—share their personal experience of “border-crossing,” and the lessons
learned from their interreligious encounters.
