The People Who Write for TIO

This posting marks TIO’s sixth issue. Half a year in seems a good time to catch a breath and see where we’ve come. More than 100 articles, news items, interfaith reports, and calendar events have gone to TIO subscribers and can now be found at www.theinterfaithobserver.org. In sum, this material underlines the assumption which motivated this venture in the first place – that those who embrace interfaith culture need to know more about each other, the manifold resources that are surfacing, and the ways healthy interfaith collaboration can contribute to peace, justice, and care for the Earth.

A Conversation with John Cobb

TIO: Thank you for taking the time to speak with me, Professor Cobb. I’m particularly interested in talking about one of your recent books.

John Cobb:Which one?

TIO: The Dialogue Comes of Age: Christian Encounters with Other Traditions.

Cobb: I thought you might be referring to it.

TIO: One of the things that struck me was how it focused on dialogue between religious communities as a collective. Could you tell me more about that?
