Interfaith Dialogue? That’s a Miracle!

Islamic scholars have invited Christian leaders to a dialogue. King Abdullah has called for a trialogue between Christians, Jews and Muslims. Now Middle East envoy, Tony Blair, is inviting Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs to talk across the table.

What is behind all this interfaith talk? What are the obstacles? What are the benefits?

These questions are discussed in an article at this link:
