Dr. Kuschel's lecture will explored, "How the dialog with Jews and Muslims has changed me as a Christian." He demonstrated how dialog is a core competency required in today's world with global challenges such as climate change and war. This was a timely topic since Pope Francis repeatedly encourages interreligious dialogue as a way to help bring peace and end all forms of "fundamentalism, terrorism and irrational fears."
