The idea of dialogue between religions has come to represent the proper or ideal form of interreligious engagement. Rather than competing with one another for territories, converts or religious superiority, religions have come to adopt a more constructive attitude toward one another, collaborating in various types of social projects and exchanging views on common religious questions.The Companion to Inter-Religious Dialogue is a uniquely comprehensive and wide-ranging volume exploring the development, the conditions, and the current state of play in dialogue between different religions. The result is an indispensable volume for students, scholars and practitioners of inter-religious dialogue
