Abstract The Synod of Asian Bishops felt that dialogue with peoples of other faiths was an essential aspect of Christian life in Asia. "The actual celebration of the Synod itself confirmed the importance of dialogue as a characteristic mode of the Church's life in Asia."[1] The call to be a Christian is also a call to enter into dialogue with peoples of other faiths. "Ecumenical dialogue and interreligious dialogue constitute a veritable vocation of the Church."[2] This is not merely a survival tactic, now that Asian countries are no longer colonies of some powerful Christian state in the West - as some think. The call to dialogue is rooted in a deeper understanding of what it means to be human and Christian.
