Why is the religious world not yet peaceful despite the resources put into dialogue as a solution?

What is it about?

Two perspectives of the problem of dialogue and conflict among people and religions. Firstly, a depressing conclusion that either God has assumed a deistic approach to human relationship, hence leaving man to the whims of his realities, or there was no God in the first place who inspires religions in their multiplicities. Secondly, human efforts, based on interreligious dialogue, at addressing plurality as a problem and curbing the consequences from it have so far been proven futile.

Why is it important?

a) To portray the necessity of interreligious dialogue and the nobility of its nature, objectives and aspirations. b) To expose too that despite the human and financial resources so far, interreligious dialogue has not yet achieved the expectations of its ideals. c) To delineate the depth of discord among religions, and the problem of dissension between religions and the society, the common public. d) To search, identify and establish why there has not been practicable interreligious dialogue to the effect of harmony and unity among religions. In other words, to ask why there is a missing link between interreligious dialogue and the public, exposing the challenges that hinder or accrue from this missing link. e) To proffer solutions for a successful and practicable interreligious dialogue.

This is my doctoral thesis. There is no gain-saying the depth of research that went into this work. I highly recommend it for those who want to know much about interreligious dialogue and its practicability.
