Religion scholar Diana Eck is director of the Pluralism Project, which seeks to map the new religious diversity of the United States, particularly the increasing presence of Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim communities. In this tenth-anniversary edition of Encountering God, Eck shows why dialogue with people of other faiths remains crucial in today's interdependent world -- globally, nationally, and even locally. She reveals how her own encounters with other religions have shaped and enlarged her Christian faith toward a bold new Christian pluralism. Book jacket.

One of the members of a small interfaith dialog group to which I belong suggested we all read this book. I am glad she called it to my attention, this is a wonderful discussion of the theology of, need for, and aims of interfaith dialogue. I want to read more like this. Read full review

Review: Encountering God: A Spiritual Journey from Bozeman to Banaras

User Review  - Roger Mohr - Goodreads

Interesting, and occasionally very insightful. Lost a star because the narrative frequently falls into a default Christian perspective that seems to lose the larger themes. But then that sort of bias is the problem with Christianity, in general. Read full review
