Ecclesial Spirituality and Other Faith Traditions

  • Roger Haight S.J.
Part of the Pathways for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue book series (PEID)


The aim of this chapter is to promote an openness to the spiritualities of other faith traditions as a way of encouraging positive interreligious attitudes and dialogue. Frequently one can more readily enter into a constructive conversation with members of other faiths on a level of their spiritual practice, whereas a focus on metanarratives implied in systems of belief can hinder an appreciation for the other. This chapter argues that Christians may explicitly explore the spiritual practices of other religions as a way of stimulating and deepening their own faith and discusses why and how this should occur.
