Authors: Lamberigts, Mathijs
Issue Date: 2015

Host Document: The New Evangelization. Faith, People, Context and Practice pages:15-29
Abstract: In this contribution we argue that every kind of evangelization should start from orthopraxis rather than putting orthodoxy in the center. Authenticity must be preferred over doctrine. Further, we emphasize that religious liberty and respect for human conscience are the cornerstones of every type of evangelization. We also underpin the idea that authentic interreligious dialogue should be open to what other religions have to offer, even if these religions are not willing to listen to Christian views on religion. In any case, search for truth and meaning of life must have their fundament in respect for the other.
