    One thought on “Globalization, Gender, and Peacebuilding: The Future of Interfaith Dialogue”

    1. I had to read this book for Education for Ministry EfM I really wanted to like it, as the title held promise But I found it full of platitudes, criticisms of the status quo without proposing solutions, and just plain bad logic Recognizing that the book originated as a lecture, and some of what seemed stale and banal on the page might have sounded inspiring and energizing when spoken did not really redeem the book for me.

    2. I thought this book was quite interesting It s overview of plurality was not doctrinaire, and Prof Kwok s purpose, I thought, was to provide food for thought even though I think she s clearly on the leftie side of the debate.Here s a couple of comments or questions comments First, in chapter two, I like very much the lesson on misappropriation of different cultures or traditions e.g Native American under the guise of honoring or benefiting from the fruits of diversity I had never heard someone a [...]

    3. I was raised believing that my religion was the one true religion Many of us were Once I shook off this belief in my early 20s, I was left with no religion at all for many years Professor Kwok s thin volume based on lectures asserts the place for religion in our lives, and the benefit of sincere inter religious understanding.

    4. The author, and other authors quoted apparently never heard the advice to eshew obfuscation Some concepts are interesting, but made opaque by the language used.

    5. Quite the thought provoking book After laying the groundwork with chapters on Globalization, Religious Pluralism, and Dialogue and Gender and Interfaith Dialogue, Kwok provocatively brings it all together in the final chapter, Dialogue, Solidarity, and Peacebuilding She states that A group of scholars working on constructive theology suggested the term polydoxy to capture the ideas that Christians do not have a monopoly on God s revelation and that divinity should be understood in terms of multi [...]

    6. This book was described as Shows how globalization has impacted interreligious relationships and dialogue and argues that the future of interfaith dialogue must include those marginalized voices that have not been invited to the table, especially women I was an interesting read but difficult at times to totally grasp the many concepts presented Although by the end of the book I didn t feel totally enlightened, I was challenged to think about interfaith dialogue and globalization where it fits i [...]

    7. I loved this book Good summaries of past and present with a good scholarship view of the future Having studied Interfaith Dialog in seminary, I followed the material very well Yes, the issue of how to implement and lay down the rules of dialogue as she suggests are not clear But, this is an academic lecture.

    8. I read this for EFM Gave me lots to think about, but I also think the author could have expounded on some of the concepts she discussed.

    9. An interesting perspective on the challenges facing intercultural dialogue and suggestions for making it work.

    10. A lot to think about in a very small book Richly but tightly written.I particularly appreciated the quotes I included in my status updates, which had to be truncated.

    11. enlightening and inspiring the ground is shifting spotlights where we need to do work and address inequality and injustice
