Dr. Wilhelmus Valkenberg Publishes Book on World Religions

Published by Anselm Academic, World Religions in Dialogue: A Comparative Theological Approach encourages a deep understanding by modeling a way to learn about world religions that moves beyond information into actual encounters with religious others. The book's unique approach includes insider and outsider perspectives of four major non-Christian world religions through dialogue between Christian scholars of these religions, and Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and Jewish scholars of their own religions. With insider and outsider analysis of sacred text excerpts, glossaries, full-color photographs throughout, and thought-provoking questions for discussion and further research, World Religions in Dialogue is that rare book that models learning from and with religious others rather than just about them.
