Interfaith Encounter and Dialogue

A Methodist Pilgrimage


Lynne Price

How is a Christian to think, feel and act in relation to neighbours, workmates and communities of «Other Faiths»? The question demands personal, institutional and theological responses. This book demonstrates that these attitudes are equally important and interdependent. It brings together an original survey of lay members of a church in a multifaith area of Birmingham, England, the relevant literature and statements of the Methodist Church in Britain, and Methodist theology.
In making a pilgrimage we discover, through both openness to the faith of others and commitment to Christ, that relation, dialogue and change are the means of our Christian response to life.
Contents: Relation, dialogue and change today and in the Bible - British Methodism's responses to «Other Faiths» - Three key elements of the Methodist tradition - Methodist theology and interfaith encounter.
