OPS 3: Dialogue as Encounter in Faith: Problems and Prospects
Author: Christian W Troll SJ
Publisher: International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS) Malaysia
Professor Troll presents two essays on contemporary interfaith issues. The first piece, Dialogue as Encounter in Faith: Problems and Prospects, tries to make out what elements are shared by Christianity and Islam and where they differ from each other. Troll argues that in order to enter into a meaningful dialogue it would be necessary to mark out and understand differences not only in theology but also in worldview. The second piece, Aspects of Contemporary Christian-Muslim Relations: Lessons from Germany, addresses practical issues of this dialogue.
