This book presents a comparative view of five religious traditions' resources for developing a positive appreciation for the religious other. Moving from hostility to theological hospitality and seeking the flourishing of the religious other, these traditions can offer the finest teachings on otherness and provide much needed alternatives to common perceptions of interreligious relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Religion has been and continues to be a factor that breeds conflict leading to violence among human beings. Can religion also provide human beings with a capacity to work creatively together toward a more humane, peaceful, and ecologically sustainable world? This book offers critical and constructive essays by scholars of five major religious traditions that examine the seeds of hostility toward religious Others and seek to highlight those elements that ground attitudes of hospitality and loving kindness toward Others in a way that would lead to harmonious coexistence and cooperation in our world today. -- Ruben L.F. Habito, Southern Methodist University
Alon Goshen-Gottstein has put together a beautiful and useful volume. The essays here offer an appreciative view into the rooms of different religious traditions and illuminate the corridors that connect them. Highly recommended for anyone seeking the theological resources to be an interfaith leader. -- Eboo Patel, founder and president, Interfaith Youth Core; author of Acts of Faith and Interfaith Leadership
