We Can't Ignore Those Whose Faith Differs From Our Own Aug 7, 2001
Technological advances and global migration have made our world feel a great deal smaller than it used to. If there was a time when people of differing religious commitments could ignore one another, that time is gone. We work with people of every religious persuasion and even those who profess no religious beliefs. We pass them every day on the street and we live next door to them. In the coffee shop we meet Jews, Muslims, Christians and Hindus. We must begin to incorporate this reality into our approach to religious education. This volume, edited by Norma Thompson, goes a long way to do just that and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is a catechist or religious educator. Chapters are written by Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant and Roman Catholic religious educators. Similarities and differences are explained in approaches. The text is published by a fine publisher, Religious Education Press in Birmingham, Alabama. I've not seen anything quite like this helpful volume.
