Description:In this compelling, funny, enlightening guide for students, groups, and organizations seeking to promote understanding across religious lines, renowned interfaith leader Eboo Patel offers a clear, detailed, and practical guide to interfaith leadership. Patel explains what interfaith leadership is and explores the core competencies and skills of interfaith leadership, before turning to the issues interfaith leaders face and how they can prepare to solve them. Interfaith leaders seek points of connection and commonality—in their neighborhoods, schools, college campuses, companies, organizations, hospitals, and other spaces where people of different faiths interact. While it can be challenging to navigate the differences and disagreements that can arise from these interactions, skilled interfaith leaders are vital if we are to have a strong, religiously diverse democracy. This primer presents listeners with the philosophical underpinnings of interfaith theory and outlines the skills necessary to practice interfaith leadership today.
