Witnessing a dialog of religions and cultures Dec 6 2007
By Fr. Xavier Nacke - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am about 3/4 way throught this book. I have found it to be an encouragement to patiently dialog with "the other." "The other" are those people, religions, cultures, which we have grown up unfamiliar with. The resulting ignorance leads to prejudice which in turn can lead to violence, etc. The central figure of this book, Bishop Pierre Claverie, a Dominican friar who was made a bishop in the 1980s in Algeria, exemplifies this dialog. His willingness to honestly encounter "the other" - in this case, the Islamic people - was a willingness unto death!
