161: Interfaith Dialogue: Co-Exist or Convert?
January 13, 2011 Length: 33:30
Fr. Alexander Goussetis, priest, comparative religion professor, and interfaith dialogue participant and advocate, speaks with host Kevin Allen about his views on the purpose of interfaith dialogue with Jews, Muslims, and other non-Christians. Kevin asks: Does the Gospel call us to merely understand the faiths of non-Christians, to enter into dialogue with them with no agenda, or is the goal always to try to win those we dialogue with to Christ? Is it "Orthodox" to proselytize, or simply to be a holy witness? These and other questions will be addressed in this program.
"I am a 12-year-old girl who loves AFR. "Readings from Under the Grapevine" is Awesome! My brothers sometimes listen to it, and I listen to it when I can, which lately has been almost all day. We were introduced to an Orthodox church a couple of months ago, and we are working our way into becoming Orthodox Christians. Thank you so much for AFR."
