Summary
"Dialogue" is one of American religion's shopworn terms. Although there is much talk about dialogue, very little of it actually takes place. Religious discourse -- especially about politics and public affairs -- is increasingly polarized; there is much contestation, but little conversation. If truths are to be tested, however, there is no substitute for dialogue. Arising out of conferences sponsored by the Center on Religion & Society in New York City, the Encounter Series presents the dialogue of a diverse group of theologians, ethicists, philosophers, and public policy experts from across the political and religious spectrum. - Back cover
