Encountering Other Faiths
Encountering Other Faiths (EOF) is an interactive education and dialogue series designed to break down stereotypes and explore challenging interfaith issues. Based off the book written by Sr. Maria Hornung, Encountering Other Faiths addresses the imperative of inter-religious dialogue within the world and within the United States.
The adaptable Encountering Other Faiths curriculum supports the development of skills in the practice of inter-religious discourse and gives practical guidance for individuals and study-groups on how to encourage inter-religious dialogue in its beginning stages.
A version of the Encountering Other Faiths Workbook can be downloaded for free below for groups wishing to begin to engage in meaningful interfaith encounters. For religions within the growing pluralistic world of the twenty-first century, this is indeed a kairos movement.
