 What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue, Second Edition is a non-fiction handbook and guide for the increasing numbers of people who are becoming involved with interfaith dialogue.
Written in an accessible style, the work explains how to overcome basic differences and yet ensure the longevity and productivity of an interfaith dialogue group.  So many dialogue groups grind to a halt because of group politics, differences in approach, and no sense of what the group should do beyond talking.  What the World Needs to Know about Interfaith Dialogue addresses all of these issues based on author Richard M. Landau’s observations of both failed and successful interfaith dialogue groups over the past 30 years.

Readers will come away with a knowledge of the tools required to start and conduct successful interfaith or inter-denominational dialogue.  It will aid the reader to build bridges of understanding, resolve conflicts, and identify problems before they develop.

Most Christians believe that everything about Jesus and the early church can be found in their New Testament. In recent years, however, the discovery of the Gospel of Thomas and the reconstruction of the Q-Gospel have led scholars to recognize that some very early materials were left out. Now, due to the pioneering efforts of Dr. Aaron Milavec, the most decisive document of them all, namely, the Didache (?Did-ah-Kay?), has come to light. Milavec has decoded the Didache and enabled it to reveal its hidden secrets regarding those years when Christianity was little more than a faction within the restless Judaisms of the mid-first-century. The Didache reveals a tantalizingly detailed description of the prophetic faith and day-to-day routines that shaped the Jesus movement some twenty years after the death of Jesus. The focus of the movement then was not upon proclaiming the exalted titles and deeds of Jesus?aspects that come to the fore in the letters of Paul and in the Gospel narratives. In contrast to these familiar forms of Christianity, the focus of the Didache was upon "the life and the knowledge" of Jesus himself. Thus, the Didache details the step-by-step process whereby non-Jews were empowered by assimilating the prophetic faith and the way of life associated with Jesus of Nazareth.Milavec?s clear, concise, and inspiring commentaries are not only of essential importance to scholars, pastors, and students but also very useful for ordinary people who wish to unlock the secrets of the Didache. Milavec?s analytic, Greek-English side-by-side, gender-inclusive translation is included as well as a description of how this document, after being fashioned and used 50-70 C.E., was mysteriously lost for over eighteen hundred years before being found in an obscure library in Istanbul. The study questions, bibliography, and flowcharts enable even first-time users to grasp the functional and pastoral genius that characterized the earliest Christian communities. ?Will undoubtedly challenge many who seek to understand the background and perspectives of the Didache.? The Catholic Biblical Review?This volume, however, is significant by itself and provides for a wider audience a very accessible introduction to Milavec?s work on this important document.? Worship?Milavec?s work merits wide study and discussion especially because it presents alternative views and profound challenges to what has been the scholarly consensus on the development and interpretation of the text.?
