Presentation by Peter Feldmeier

When we enter into the theological and spiritual vision of the religious other, we can discover new ways of seeing the world and ourselves. This new vision can not only deepen our own religious convictions, but can also provide a whole other spiritual dimension. Professor Feldmeier will reflect on how interreligious engagement can move from merely comparing sets of religious claims to transformational possibilities.

Peter Feldmeier, Ph.D., formerly a professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas, is the Murray/Bacik Professor of Catholic Studies at the University of Toledo. He holds a doctorate in Christian Spirituality from the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, and has published widely in areas of spirituality and interreligious dialogue. His most recent books are The Path of Wisdom: A Christian Commentary on the Dhammapada with Leo Lefebure (Peeters/Eerdmans) and Encounters in Faith: Christianity in Interreligious Dialogue (Anselm Academic), both published in 2011.
