POPE BENEDICT XVI had fundamental objections to theological dialogue with Islam. Until today, his reservations continue to challenge Muslim–Christian encounters, but challenges need not be obstacles. Joseph Ratzinger proved to be a pope of “reflection”, pointing at unresolved issues in the Church’s interaction with Islam. Today, the concerns expressed by Ratzinger can guide us towards a renewed theology of interreligious dialogue.
Q&A led by Dr. John Borelli, Special Assistant to the President for Catholic Identity and Dialogue, Georgetown University.
