Endorsements

"The subject is critical. In our pluralistic world, the need to encounter the stranger is not only a question of hospitality. It is a matter of our survival. Given the enormity of our global issues, it is clear that no one nation, culture, or religion can solve the problems. We simply have to co-operate and collaborate."—Imam Jamal Rahman, author of The Fragrance of Faith: The Enlightened Heart of Islam

"Encountering the Stranger is an exciting, rewarding book, a pathbreaking work full of theological treasures, insights, and stimulating ideas."—Martin Rumscheidt, Atlantic School of Theology

"This is an important scholarly event, a teaching tool, and a resource for clergy formation and informal adult religious studies. The prominence of the contributors will help the book reach a wide range of constituencies and the accessible presentation of the divergent perspectives gathered here will grip readers."—George R. Wilkes, University of Edinburgh
