Communication theory provides a compelling way to understand how people of faith can and should work together in today's tumultuous world. In A Communication Perspective on Interfaith Dialogue, fifteen authors present their experiences and analyses of interfaith dialogue, and contextualize interfaith work within the frame of rhetorical and communication studies. While the focus is on the Abrahamic faiths, these essays also include discussion of Hinduism and interracial faith efforts. Each chapter incorporates communication theories that bring clarity to the practices and problems of interfaith communication. Where other interfaith books provide theological, political, or sociological insights, this volume is committed to the perspectives contained in communication scholarship. Interfaith dialogue is best imagined as an organic process, and it does not require theological heavyweights gathered for academic banter. As such, this volume focuses on the processes and means by which interfaith meaning is produced.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In our culture of ideological division where voices compete for attention as they propagandize and polarize political and religious establishments, this engaging collection calls for authentic dialogue and civility. It also seeks to build-bridges among faith traditions in thoughtful ways that effectively transcend the divide and speak to the wider society. -- Robert H. Woods, Spring Arbor University
This collection moves from the fundamentals of communication theory and interfaith dialogue to the application and challenges of those principles. Clearly it is not enough to know the doctrinal and cultural differences found in our pluralistic religious environments, one must also understand the obstacles that separate us from the other. A Communication Perspective on Interfaith Dialogue is an important contribution to breaking down the walls that hinder our progress toward peace and understanding. -- Richard K. Eckley, Houghton College
