Apples and Oranges?: An Interreligious Approach to Loving God and Neighbor

 In-person Event | Presenter: Chris Conway, Ph. D.

The reality of religious pluralism—that there are many religions, that many good and sincere people practice these many religions, and that these many religions will remain many—invites us to grow in our love for God and neighbor by encountering what is true, good, and holy in these traditions. But where and how do we begin this interreligious learning? With examples from Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, we will explore the possibilities religious pluralism and comparative theology provide.

Chris Conway, Ph. D. is assistant professor of theology at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University School of Theology and Seminary. His teaching and scholarship focus on comparative theology, particularly Christian and Hindu spiritual practices and devotional traditions.

 

Rescheduled from January to March 24.
