nterreligious Dialogue Today
Vulnerability & Resilience

Interreligious dialogue has never been more important. We live in an age rife with conflict, in which many find it difficult to understand or engage in constructive conversations with people who hold different beliefs and viewpoints. Utilizing research on the theories of vulnerability and resilience, Dr. Dean P. Bell and Dr. Mike Hogue suggest new ways to approach interreligious dialogue.

Dr. Dean P. Bell is Spertus Institute’s President and CEO. He also holds a Spertus Institute faculty appointment as Professor of History and is a widely published author and editor.

Dr. Mike Hogue is Professor of Theology, Ethics, and Philosophy of Religion at Meadville Lombard Theological School. He is the author of several books, most recently, American Immanence: Democracy for an Uncertain World.

For the past few years, Bell and Hogue have collaborated on the Religion, Vulnerability, and Resilience Project, initially with a grant from the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion and recently with funding from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation. Additional support for this program was received from the Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundation.
