Therefore, through the practicality of mutual concerns for political, social and ecological situations, there is a strong need for dialogue in order to live together and strive for mutual goals. Similarly, there is a form of dialogue that is designed to break down barriers of&nbsp.prejudice, distrust and hatred in the religious world. &nbsp.As stated in Netland’s Dissonant Voices: Religious Pluralism &amp. the Question of Truth, “No religious tradition can claim to be free of religious prejudice or bigotry.” &nbsp. I strongly believe that this statement is accurate, as the history of religions provides ample evidence of mutual “suspicion, hatred and ill will between religious traditions.” &nbsp. &nbsp.There are two basic and important forms of dialogue that must take place in order to create this utopia that I firmly believe may be achieved. &nbsp. The first form is based on understanding and appreciation with others that can contribute to a more accurate understanding of followers of other religions. Yet, there is also a kind of dialogue that has its objective in the “mutual comprehension of conflicting truth claims.” 7 I find that there is an importance here to commit oneself to a more clear and accurate understanding of the basic beliefs of the other party and of course, clarification is essential in any similarities and differences between beliefs.
