For many religious believers around the world, particularly those living in large urban centers, religious diversity is a pressing issue. Yet in their interreligious engagements truth is politely ignored. What are some of the key philosophical issues involving religious diversity and how might believers from different religious traditions respectfully discuss their own beliefs with confidence?
