How should Orthodox Christians regard non-Christian religions? To treat this question, John Garvey provides a concise introduction to great religious traditions, East and West, and goes on to explore how seeds of truth may be found in them, while upholding the Orthodox Church's claim as the unique repository of the Christian tradition and the ark of salvation.
"Twin pitfalls of interfaith discourse are relativism, in which differences are minimized, and absolutism, in which any true dialogue is deemed impossible. In this balanced and perceptive work, John Garvey avoids both snares."
-Rev. Theodore Pulcini, Associate Professor of Religion, Dickinson College
"This book offers a solid introduction to interfaith relations, in which encounters among diverse faiths offer both challenges to peaceful coexistence and opportunities for fruitful exchange."
-Dr Antonios Kireopoulos, Associate General Secretary for International Affairs and Peace, NCCC
