“Engaging the Media as Effective Tools for Inter-Religious Dialogue in Multi-Religious Societies: a Catholic Evaluation,” By Marinus Iwuchukwu

passport-size-pics-2311-150x150Modern societies are largely pluralistic; consequently, the coexistence of many religions is fast becoming the norm not only in Western or developed societies but globally. The Roman Catholic Church has a mission to reach all people and has some form of foothold even in societies that are heavily dominated by non-Christian religions. The media today have become the most effective way of communicating and, potentially, of building relationships with diverse populations. It is, therefore, important to harness the assets of the media toward sustainable and fruitful inter-religious dialogue. This paper argues that Catholics, and indeed all Christians, should seek the best ways of using the media to promote good neighborliness and peace in modern societies.
