Presenters: Dr. Lucinda Mosher, Elinor Pierce, and Rabbi Or Rose
With the Best of Intentions documents cases of missteps and outright failures in interfaith encounters, drawing upon the perspectives of more than three dozen scholars and practitioners. Each case also provides critical discussion of what went wrong, and why.
Pluralism in Practice features decision-based case studies of civic and religious leaders as they navigate the dilemmas and disputes of our multireligious society. Both books encourage discussion and reflection as they take on complex and challenging issues.
