followed the script word for word, the friars were unable to recognize and
understand, let alone control, the manner in which actors interpreted their roles.

A Spanish conquistador who posed as a sorcerer and cured native Americans as he trekked across an unknown wilderness; a French Jesuit who conjured rain clouds in order to impress his indigenous flock with the potency of Christian magic; a Puritan minister who healed a native chief in order to win him for God; a Mexican noble who was burned at the stake for resisting the gentle Franciscan friars; an Andean chief who was haunted by nightmares in which his native gods did battle with the Christian Father; a Huron magician who vied with French missionaries over spirits of the night in a shaking tent ceremony. These are a few of the individuals whose struggles are brought to life in the pages of this book. Their experiences, among others, reveal what happened when Christianity came into contact with Native American religions in three distinct regions of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century colonial America: Spanish, French and British.
This learning across traditions deepens faith; the dialogues are a means for
deepening that faith and growing in love for God and others. In this essay, I
propose that sacred conversations are a type of wellspring for this spirituality of dialogue.

If interreligious dialogue is to bear fruit of mutual understanding, respect, and peace, it needs to be rooted in the specific spiritual space of each religious tradition. For Christians, that milieu is Jesus space, shaped by faith in the paschal mysteries and nurtured by prayer, study, and love.

Author: Olin P. Moyd
Dr. Moyd surveys the African American preaching tradition and shows that it has been the vehicle by which practical theology has been conveyed to the people in African American congregations. Preachers have proclaimed and interpreted the Word of God, and their preaching has been 'the hallmark of hope and the pivot of promise for a pilgrim people.' The Author has gathered examples from a number of master African American preachers as illustrations of the way practical theology has provided the content of much of the classic African American preaching of the past and present.

Religious heritage and sacred sites offer an opportunity for visitors to explore a community's cultural knowledge. However, it is important to consider the role of interpretation, meaning, experience and narrative. This book is a timely re-assessment of the increasing interconnections between the management of diversity and religious tourism, and secular spaces on a global stage. It explores key learning points from a range of contemporary case studies on religious and pilgrimage activity; these relate to ancient, sacred and emerging tourist destinations, and new forms of pilgrimage, faith systems and quasi-religious activities. By providing a conceptual framework, the book demonstrates the symbolism of sacred spaces within religious traditions and the relationships developed between them. It offers explanations on how to manage and communicate religious diversity and provides a solid overview of: Religious tourism as a tool for intercultural dialogue; Interpretation of religious heritage for tourism; Cross-cultural contacts. This book will provide a valuable resource for those researching and practising tourism management, pilgrimage and religious tourism.

Author: David Carpenter
"The claim to possession of revealed truth is not unique to any single religion, nor confined to the so-called "axial" ("world") religions. But what kind of work is necessary before a term like "revelation" can be used in comparing two religious traditions - and to what end? What does the problem of revelation have to do with the history of religions, and the plurality of religions?" "In Revelation, History, and the Dialogue of Religions David Carpenter, an expert in medieval Catholic theology as well as Indian religious thought, approaches the doctrine of revelation in the writings of the medieval Christian theologian, St. Bonaventure, a prime exemplar of Logos theology, and of Bhartrhari, a classical Indian grammarian and philosopher of language who is an analogous figure in the Hindu religious tradition. In examining and comparing the writings of these two figures from two distinct traditions and cultures, Carpenter explores the phenomenon of revelation as a dynamic, linguistically-mediated process that needs to be located within the historical horizons of the religious traditions in which it is found."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Sacred Dialogue: Tuning Into Mother Nature's Universal Broadcast Band is a snapshot of one man's life journey into the paranormal. Stories are told of unusual sights, sounds, dreams, info bursts, meditations, and telepathic communication with unknown sources. Writer Roger Marsh learned to accept and deal with the sixth sense in his life, and eventually experimented with a two-way style of learning about his environment and the future. The solutions for listening to the universe were all rather simple techniques and required no props or instruments. The dialogue eventually seemed to be natural and part of man's ability if only he listens.
The same is true in part regarding his other major work ( Dialogue 17 ; 53 ) , but
on most occasions he quotes portions which he ... Since the Dialogue purports to

" "Jung and Shamanism in Dialogue makes an excellent resource for psychotherapists, social workers, clergy and anyone interested in tapping into psycho-spiritual wisdom.
Author: C. Michael Smith
"In this highly original study, C. Michael Smith explores the affinities and distinctions between shamanism and Jungian psychology by bringing them together in dialogue. According to Smith, shamanism is considered to be a complex of practices of magico-religious character concerned primarily with psycho-spiritual and psychosomatic healing. Smith systematically examines shamanism from a Jungian perspective, and Jungian psychology from a shamanic perspective, ultimately reflecting on the clinical and cultural implications of this study on psychotherapy and spirituality today."

Author: Larry D. Shinn
Publisher: Abingdon Press
Dr. Shinn explores these two sacred worlds: the personal, which results from the emotional attitudes aroused by an experience of sacred power; and the social, which originates in the processes of socialization composed of experiences in the home, religious institutions, and other influential groups. Using examples from three traditions- Hebrew religion, early Christianity, and monastic Buddhism- he examines the interdependence of personal and institutional forms of myth and ritual and the relation of personal and social religion to ethical interpretations and to dogma and theology.
