The expression “interreligious dialogue” refers to positive interaction between people of different faith approaches, worldviews and communities. Although it is difficult to draw out the aims of the modern interreligious movement, which contains many disparate groups and individuals, certain common goals do seem to emerge. Most participants in this dialogue seek to respect the other’s point of view, as well as to share their own (NWE, 2015).
