The Journal of Interreligious Studies is a forum for academic, social, and timely issues affecting religious communities around the world. It is a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to innovative research on and study of the interactions that take place within and between religious communities. Published online, it is designed to increase both the quality and frequency of interchanges between religious groups and their leaders and scholars. By fostering conversation, the JIRS hopes to increase religious literacy, contribute to the field of interreligious hermeneutics, and address the issues surrounding interreligious relations, dialogue, theology, and communication. The JIRS solicits articles of an interdisciplinary nature and with the aim of producing resources for interreligious education, pedagogy, theology and cooperation.
