Promoting understanding between religions

Listen to this story
How can people of different religions learn to live together in peace? Especially, since 9/11, many religious leaders and scholars have been trying to answer that question. Gustav Niebuhr's book, Beyond Tolerance, explores the importance of interfaith dialogue and action in a post 9/11 world. Niebuhr has worked as a religion reporter, most recently for the New York Times, and has established a reputation as a leading writer about American religion. His work has been published in books, magazines and websites, and he does occasional commentaries on religion for NPR. Gustav Niebuhr will give a lecture on his book "Beyond Tolerance" at SUNY Potsdam tonight (7 pm). Niebuhr is a professor of journalism and religion at Syracuse University. He told Todd Moe that it's not enough for us to speak about being tolerant, but that we must actually be tolerant of those different from ourselves.
