The human race is in serious trouble. The last of the global time-space barriers to human intercourse have fallen to the jet age. The guest for human community in our global village is of major existential concern. One of the expressions of the heightened awareness of what it means to be human is a mushrooming concern for better understanding of the religious experience of the human race, especially the faith of those outside one’s own religious tradition. Indeed, from the contemporary renaissance of the world’s religious traditions influences of unprecedented power are being felt as these religions emerge into fuller participation in the design of world history. There can be no doubt concerning the urgent need for greater and more real understanding in order to contribute creatively to the fashioning of a world community in which peace with justice will be the fundamental reality.
