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.
"It is a wonderful way to remain grounded in the teachings of the Church. I also listen to AFR at work. It has been such a blessing with such a wide variety of lessons and teachers. I am very glad to see the addition of the saint for the day. I was hoping for this!"
