Michael Barnes SJ contributes to the debate about the place of inter-religious relations in the life of the Church by developing a "theology of dialogue". He offers a critique of much current thinking in this area and proposes instead a theology rooted in the themes of welcome and hospitality. He argues for a vision of Christianity as a "school of faith", a community called not only to teach others but to learn from them as well.
