Welcoming Other Religions : A New Dimension of the Christian Faith Paperback
Part of the Monastic Interreligi series
The Benedictine monk Pierre-Francois de Bethune has dedicated his life to following the lead of the great pioneers of interreligious dialogue at the level of spiritual experience.
Having practiced zazen and "Way of tea" assiduously for decades, he now leads readers along the path of spiritual hospitality, describing how welcoming other religions transformed him and brought him to rediscover the Gospel.
In this volume, he evokes the spiritual journeys of some of the pioneers of interreligious dialogue, among them, Thomas Merton, Henri Le Saux, Raimon Panikkar, and Christian de Cherge and the monks of Tibhirine.
In doing so, he proposes that their commitment to dialogue, hospitality, and welcoming the other corresponds to what the Gospel requires of the followers of Jesus.
