This Is a Recipe Book for Interfaith Harmony

There are some books written about dialogue from ivory tower thinkers who don't participate in dialogue – and other written from a single-faith point of view.

This book is different.

It's tried and tested in real down-to-earth interfaith dialogue. Richard M. Landau wrote the book because there is no other book that explains the how-to's of interfaith dialogue.

What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue proposes an exclusive technique: the 'willing suspension of belief'. It works. So, for example, if a devout Jew is meeting with a pious Muslim, the technique shows how you build genuine bridges of understanding and unity between them.

Traditionally interfaith dialogue groups have been hard to set up, difficult to sustain, and dogged by religious and personality conflicts. Frequently they do little more than spend hundreds of hours simply talking. But your group can accomplish much, much more -- if you follow the basic ground rules outlined in What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue.

The Only Lasting Way To Beat Religious Bigots And Extremists Is Through Dialogue

Nothing defeats extremism like thoughtful and kind dialogue that recognizes that we have our differences – so then, how are we going to get along?

What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue... is a critical tool to help you work in harmony with people of other faiths.

It's an entertaining, fast-paced reference text supplemented with additional useful anecdotal information. It touches on virtually every situation and challenge you'll encounter in interfaith dialogue. Over 70,000-words, it's an exhaustive sourcebook and a manual of diplomacy and tact.
