Book 2 Foundations Series
A concise introduction to great religious traditions, Eastern and Western, with a view to the elements in them that might be brought into fruitful dialogue. Fr. Garvey also reviews the encounters between Orthodox Christianity and other religions in history and today, leaving the reader with useful insights into how to relate to people of other faiths. This book could hardly be more timely.
"Twin pitfalls of interfaith discourse are relativism, in which differences are minimized, and absolutism, in which any true dialogue is deemed impossible. In this balanced and perceptive work, John Garvey avoids both snares."
-Rev. Theodore Pulcini, Associate Professor of Religion, Dickinson College
"This book offers a solid introduction to interfaith relations, in which encounters among diverse faiths offer both challenges to peaceful coexistence and opportunities for fruitful exchange."
-Dr Antonios Kireopoulos, Associate General Secretary for International Affairs and Peace, NCCC
