In this collection of essays, Dorothy Yoder Nyce my friend, student, and fellow searcher illustrates and embodies a truth that has been dawning on, and calling for reform of, the mainline Christian churches (even many evangelical churches) for the last half century: as the Asian Catholic Bishops have put it: Dialogue is the new way of being church. Pentecost, which might be called the big bang that launched the ecclesia, will continue rippling through the ecclesial universe of the second millennium mainly through the energy of dialogue. In order for the community of Jesus-followers to be faithful disciples in our present world they need to understand Christian to mean dialogical. To
continue being the church of Jesus Christ, we will have to be the dialogical church of Jesus Christ.
Because of her own life experiences, because of the demands of her own Mennonite Christian faith, because of the friends she has made in other religions, Dorothy Yoder Nyce has felt and responded to this call to live the Gospel in a lived engagement with persons of other faiths. As I read through the essays in this collection both the more scholarly reflections as well as the living dialogical conversations that she records and imagines I heard her give expression to two primary reasons why interreligious dialogue has become for her, as for a growing number of Christians, a moral imperative. The world which the church is called to serve, challenge, and transform is a world in dire need of dialogue for two daunting reasons: it is a pluralistic world, and it is a violent world.
