One of the most hopeful developments in the contemporary religious world has been the growing recognition that there is a great deal of wisdom in the religious traditions of others. This is not merely the civic “tolerance” that emerged after World War II, but a willingness and even eagerness to learn from each other, as well as a willingness to engage in self-criticism. Each of these books offers such an interreligious opening.

My Neighbor’s Faith draws from a wide range of theologians, including Judith Plaskow, Brian McLaren, Ali S. Asani, and Anantanand Rambachan. A God in the House does the same for poets, with contributions from Carolyn Forché, Kazim Ali, Alicia Ostriker, and others.
