Abstract

This presentation examined Christian attitudes to interfaith dialogue arguing that it is important for Christian to take other religions seriously. Some case studies of the importance of interfaith dialogue are examined along with statements from the Roman Catholic Church, Anglican Church and World Council of Churches. Six conditions for interfaith dialogue are discussed before the notion of hermeneutic idealism is discussed as something that prevents effective interfaith dialogue. The work of Habermas and Ruperall are discussed in terms of the intersubjectivity of communicative action which address the seams or interstices. Finally a case study of interfaith dialogue between Christians and Muslims is used to show a concrete example of interfaith dialogue.
