With rare exceptions, serious intentional, relflective, and sustained interfaith encounter is a novel and recent enterprise. This book looks in detail at one such encounter--the intentional recent Hindu-Christian dialogue in India--and asks why and how the practice of dialogue came to replace previous attitudes of confrontation and monologue (especially on the part of Christians).

Unlike many other works in the area of interfaith studies, this book combines descriptive detail of the actual encounter and critical theological analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the dialogue model.
