Week 9, Ch. 8, Fuellenbach

November 26, 2007

The discussion in this chapter about interreligious dialogue was noteworthy. It seems that interreligious dialogue is a more developed aspect of Catholic mission theology than many other Christian traditions based on what is written in this chapter and from what I have observed. I have at times in the past associated interreligious dialogue with Christians who are going to de-emphasize the particularity of Christ in exchange for a universalism that places all religious traditions on the same plane. I don’t know where I got these ideas, but I am realizing that interreligious dialogue when done with humility can be a way in which missions can happen.
