Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the structural untidiness of Anglican interfaith relations, especially with Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, which are variously located alongside mission, ecumenical, or social responsibility work in national church or diocesan offices. However, such structural untidiness reflects the richness of interfaith engagement within the Anglican Communion and its creative interaction with and important contribution to these three fields of work. Within the framework provided by engagement with mission,, and social responsibility the chapter offers a historical survey, from the late eighteenth century to the present day, of key figures and trends in Anglican work among people of other faiths. It draws attention to the influential report produced by the Network for Inter Faith Concerns of the Anglican Communion (NIFCON), Generous Love the Truth of the Gospel and the Call to Dialogue (2008), and the motif of theological generosity which has marked out Anglican work in this field.

Keywords: interfaith, dialogue, mission, ecumenism, social responsibility, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, generous
