Teaching Interreligious Encounters is a multidisciplinary volume of original essays addressing pedagogical issues related to teaching that occurs through experiences of different religious traditions or interreligious encounters. The book brings together international scholars who work in and speak from a variety of contexts as loci for teaching interreligious encounters: undergraduate and graduate programs, secular and religiously affiliated institutions, divinity schools and seminaries, as well as graduate career preparation in nonreligious professions. There are four sections in the volume: “Theorizing Encounters” is partly propaedeutic but also representative of how theory constantly informs praxis even as it is informed by praxis; (2) “Arranging Encounters” contemplates planning and pedagogical strategies; (3) “Textual Encounters” contains essays on text-based teaching approaches; and (4) “Practical Encounters” presents pedagogical strategies with attention to the importance of lived experience through hands-on practices like case studies, site visits, and immersion programs.
