Interreligious dialogue is best defined as intentional encounter and interaction among members of different religions as members of different religions.
The project will gather youth workers and youth leaders from Program and Partner countries to explore the potential for interreligious activities in youth work. In the emerging global and multicultural world, the constructive and dialogical character of interreligious relations are of utmost importance. The necessity of dialogue between religions is becoming one of the typical features of the contemporary era.
Interfaith dialogue refers to cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions i. It is distinct from syncretism or alternative religion, in that dialogue often involves promoting understanding between different religions or beliefs to increase acceptance of others, rather than to synthesize new beliefs. The Archdiocese of Chicago 's Office for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs defines "the difference between ecumenical, interfaith, and interreligious relations", as follows:. Some interfaith dialogues have more recently adopted the name interbelief dialogue ,    while other proponents have proposed the term interpath dialogue , to avoid implicitly excluding atheists, agnostics, humanists, and others with no religious faith but with ethical or philosophical beliefs, as well as to be more accurate concerning many world religions that do not place the same emphasis on "faith" as do some Western religions. Similarly, pluralistic rationalist groups have hosted public reasoning dialogues to transcend all worldviews whether religious, cultural or political , termed transbelief dialogue. Neither are the same as nondenominational Christianity. The World Council of Churches distinguishes between 'interfaith' and 'interreligious'.
Christian and Buddhist approach to religious exclusivity. Do interfaith scholars have it right? Buddhist-Christian interfaith scholars 1 are quick to denounce what they perceive as religious exclusivity. So when it comes to the major views on just how true and salvific the religions can be, it is no surprise that Exclusivism is ruled out automatically. What is surprising is how inevitable it is that when Buddhist-Christian interfaith scholars commit to any view - whether Inclusivism, Pluralism, or Relativism - they themselves end up committing the sin of exclusivity. Whatever view they entertain turns out to be too exclusivistic for somebody, by having too particular a saviour Exclusivism , too particular a salvation Inclusivism , too particular a metaphysics Pluralism , or too sceptical a religious outlook Relativism.
This paper presents data from interviews with senior Catholic and Buddhist nuns living in the United States who participated in an interreligious dialogue. We focus on how Catholic nuns develop, appropriate, and adapt Buddhist forms and ideas in their daily religious practices and how Buddhist nuns respond. We describe and analyze three distinct discursive constructions of Buddhism that Catholic and Buddhist nuns draw upon, and discuss the significance of these constructions for members of both traditions as they think about their groups' futures. This material contributes to research on religious syncretism, appropriation, and the hybrid nature of religious traditions in practice.

Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press, Masao Abe's Buddhism and Interfaith Dialogue, described by the publisher as "part one of a two-volume sequel to Zen and Western Thought," contains a variety of essays and papers previously published in journals or presented at lectures and conferences. In the midst of this variety a central question is repeatedly asked: "How can we fmd a common spiritual basis in this pluralistic world without marring the unique characteristics of each ofthe cultural and spiritual traditions? Abe hopes to both affirm the two religious traditions and, at the same time, avoid any vicious relativism or self-defeating skepticism by fmding the spiritual basis common to them both. He calls upon himself and his readers to surpass the traditional doctrine formulations of one's religion and achieve "a radical reinterpretation of each religion's own spirituality " p. Abe poses the question of a common spiritual basis not only from an academic but from an urgent existential standpoint as well. His concern is not only achieving intellectual harmony between these two different religious traditions, but defending religion in general against modernization, secularization, and "religion-negating ideologies " p.

ГЛАВА 28 Сеньор Ролдан восседал за своим столом в агентстве сопровождения Белена, чрезвычайно довольный тем, как умело обошел глупую полицейскую ловушку. Немецкий акцент и просьба снять девушку на ночь - это же очевидная подстава. Интересно, что они еще придумают.
- Ты думаешь, что в ТРАНСТЕКСТ проник вирус. Мидж вздохнула: - А что еще это может. - Это может быть не вашим делом! - раздался зычный голос у них за спиной. Мидж от неожиданности стукнулась головой о стекло. Бринкерхофф опрокинул директорский стул и бросился к двери.
Неужели она узнала. Этого не может. Стратмор был уверен, что предусмотрел. - Сьюзан, - сказал он, подходя ближе.
Но тот молчал. Конец лета. Солнце уже зашло. Над головой автоматически зажглись лампы дневного света. Сьюзан нервничала: прошло уже слишком много времени.
Сьюзан кинулась мимо Стратмора к задней стене и принялась отчаянно нажимать на клавиши.
