Written and edited by leading scholars in the field, this collection explores Aquinas’ continuing relevance to contemporary theology and his ability to enlighten inter- and intra-faith dialogue.

  • Explores Aquinas’ continuing relevance to contemporary theology.

  • Looks at how Aquinas illuminates dialogue both among Christians and between Christians and non-Christians today.

  • Written by both scholars of Aquinas and those who are actively involved in ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue.

  • Topics range from Aquinas and Eastern Orthodoxy to Aquinas and atheism.

  • Helps us to think rigorously about what is required to speak truthfully to people with different beliefs.

"Jim Fodor and Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt have assembled a series of well--crafted and tightly reasoned essays ... (they) have done us a great service by reminding us, once again, of Thomas Aquinasa s enduring relevance to the religious conversation." The Thomist "Aquinas in Dialogue brings together some of the most eminent of modern theological exponents of Aquinasa s thought to show how Aquinas engages with traditions other than his own: Lutheranism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, analytic philosophy, and atheism."
