Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience of ecumenical cooperation, Roman Catholic lay brother and monk Wayne Teasdale offers a strong and prophetic voice for interfaith dialogue that brings traditions together without watering them down. He offers a blueprint for combining the strengths and perspectives of various faiths in order to address the crises of poverty, racism, environmental pollution and moral indifference. Highly informative and compelling, this book is accessible to a wide audience, from the classroom to study groups and others who want to learn about conversing across traditions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is one of the most comprehensive, most readable overviews of the history, principles and problems involved in ecumenical discussion in the Catholic tradition. At the same time, it is one of the most honest presentations of the pitfalls of traditional approaches and the challenges to it that are emerging from contemporary Catholic theologians, monastic experience and the cultural realities of the time. It is both a history and a path to the future. -- Joan Chittister, OSB
Brother Wayne Teasdale has dedicated his life to the cause of global inter-religious dialogue and action. Catholicism in Dialogue: Conversations Across Traditions both describes concrete actions to date and sets out a vision for the future of the Inter-religious Movement. Brother Wayne gives hope and inspiration to people of all faiths and perspectives so that religions, working together, can make an important contribution to building a world of peace, nonviolence and equality. -- Mairead Corrigan Maguire, co-recipient of the the 1976 Nobel Peace Prize
A reader-friendly introduction enriched by personal anecdotes. A valuable entry point into the actual state of interreligious dialogue. Recommended. * CHOICE *
Wayne Teasdale has written a very useful introduction to the nature of interreligious dialogue and the way it is practiced within the Catholic Church. His own extensive involvement in such dialogue has equipped him to make a number of thought-provoking suggestions for enhancing its practice. -- James A. Wiseman, O.S.B., editor, Bulletin of Monastic Interreligious Dialogue
