We present six full-length articles in the January 2015 issue of our flagship journal, Islam and Civilisational Renewal. We have been publishing the ICR since 2008, and I am pleased to inform our readers that all issues older than two years are now available on IAIS Malaysia website and accessible for free.
The articles section starts with my own paper, “Catholics and Muslims in Dialogue: Working Together to Serve Others,” which focuses on two themes: challenges facing the youth and working together to advance interreligious dialogue. I make a number of suggestions about how the youth of today can be empowered and become full-fledged, active participants within their respective communities. The second part of my discussion on interreligious dialogue presents a stock-taking of problems and successes of the past, followed by challenges that both our communities face at present. This is followed in turn, by reflections and proposals on how those challenges could be addressed.
