Syamsuddin Arif

Abstract

This article addresses issues related to the interfaith dialogue, focusing on the historical context from which it emerged and uncovering the tacit assumptions underlying the idea. It is argued that interfaith dialogue is part and parcel of the Christian mission which seeks to promote inclusivism but also eventually leads to pluralism and relativism. In addition, the article also discusses the three approaches taken by Muslims throughout centuries in dealing with people of other faiths.
