The word "trialogue" derives from the popular use of the term "dialogue," which comes from the two Greek words dia (across) and logos (word), and literally means "words across." Just as di-a-logos means "words between two persons," tri-a-logos means "words among three persons. --From the Foreword
Author Leonard Swidler himself is one of the American originators of the term "trialogue" and here he raises it to a new level as he shares "the podium" with professors Reuven Firestone and Khalid Duran. These three professors, beginning with Firestone and Judaism, present their faith traditions and the challenges as well as possibilities for genuine trialogue.
Each offers invaluable insights into the ways they share Hebraic roots and Abrahamic traditions and how their beliefs and practices have evolved through the centuries up to and including the present. Throughout the text, readers are encouraged to pause for reflection and/or discussion of the key points presented by the authors.
This is a fascinating, enlightening, and highly recommended introduction to these three great faith traditions and how they evolved and are practiced today.See the Table of Contents for this book.Read the Introduction for this book.Peek Inside! See a SAMPLE chapter from this book.
