The gift of responsibility: the promise of dialogue among Christians, Jews, and Muslims
For Christian theologian and ecumenist Lewis Mudge, interreligious dialogue, ever returning to its shared Abrahamic origins, proposes "rooted cosmopolitans," offering a gift of responsibility toward the well-being of humankind. That gift provides an awareness of the opportunity to assist societies in overcoming betrayals of their own Enlightenment-based promises of secular salvation. Book jacket.
