Do the religions cause war, or is their tendency to intensify violence
outweighed by their potential for peace? Are multicultural societies, as
Huntington thinks, condemned to ethnic conflict, or is a specifically
interreligious ethic emerging from their new patterns of
relationships? This book examines the liberal agenda of dialogue and
pluralism and finds that we need a more radical approach involving
indigenous peoples, women and the poor if we are to find
solutions – together – to the
problems of economic injustice and the threat of
ecological degradation. It contains the Ethel Hayton Lectures delivered at
the University of Wollongong, Australia, in 1994.

John D’Arcy May was born in Melbourne, Australia, in

Buddhist-Christian dialogue (Frankfurt) before working as an ecumenist in
Papua New Guinea. He is now Associate Professor of Interfaith Dialogue and
Ethics at the Irish School of Ecumenics in Dublin.
