Description
Summary:Presented in this article is a new method for dialogue between faith traditions. The proposed new method is presented in the form of a theoretical dialogue between Jews and Christians concerning 'salvation'. It is set forth as a 'dialectic dialogue' that shifts the focus from a direct comparison of the traditions to an indirect one. The indirect elements used are three dichotomies experienced by all and how the two traditions' adherents are encouraged to understand them is the object of discussion. This dialogue, which compares how the two traditions teach their adherents to frame these dichotomies, avoids the problems that often bring inter-religious dialogues to a premature end.
