Ten Commandments of Intefaith Dialogue

In 1983, Leonard Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought & Interreligious Dialogue at Temple University published “The Dialogue Decalogue” in the Journal of Ecumenical Studies, which he and his wife, Arlene, founded in 1964. It has been revised slightly over they years to include all manner of inter-group dialogue, but still provides an important framework for the interfaith encounter.Over the next couple of weeks, I will post the each section of the “Decalogue” with my own comments and reflections in light of the twenty years that have passed and the new religious landscape that confronts us in the South Bay in 2006.
