Muslims, Christians, and the Challenge of Interfaith Dialogue

A one-shot meeting for the purpose of getting to know each other is often the only way Christians and Muslims engage with each other. For groups who want to continue, however, it is important to determine what kind of dialogue participants are interested in. Groups often peter out simply for lack of direction and guidance. Here a number of different kinds of dialogue are discussed, from debate and confrontation to classroom discussions, theological engagement, attempts to worship together, and movements to form interfaith teams to work for some aspect of social action. Some groups simply want to learn how to live together as neighbors, to practice what is called the dialogue of life.
