How and why the Catholic Church dialogues with other Religions.
In a world which often seems divided between those who believe in a higher being and those who reject God and all religions, it is increasingly important for people of faith to learn to speak and work together.
This booklet explains what the Catholic Church intends by interfaith dialogue, what she thinks of the truth of other religions and the different questions that different religions exist to answer.
The most important related texts from Church documents are also included for easy reference.
