Chia, Edmund (Ed.). DIALOGUE - Resource Manual for Catholics in Asia.
Bangkok: FABC-Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, 2001. pp. 191. One can assume that some members of the faithful have little knowledge about
the Church’s teachings on dialogue; they probably have never heard of Nostra Aetate,
let alone understand or subscribe to its teachings. In fact, even some priests and
other pastoral leaders are not familiar with documents such as "Dialogue and Mission" nor with the FABC’s "Theology of Harmony."Hence, a gap between what the FABC and the
Church in Asia is saying about interreligious dialogue and what is actually
happening at the grassroot level. This resource manualattempts to address this issue and hopefully,
play a small role in bridging the gap between theory and practice. The resource manual
contains material which could be used for the education and formation of people in
interreligious dialogue. (Bishop Lawrence Thienchai Samanchit, FABC-OEIA chairman)

Other web-based functionalities will be included which
will help provide information to users of the Web site and
would also allow users to interact and participate in the
fulfillment of the FABC’s objectives.
FABC Papers are designed to bring the
thinking of Asian experts to a wider audience
and to develop critical analysis of the problems
facing the Church in Asia. The opinions, however,
do not necessarily represent the official policies
of FABC or its member Episcopal Conferences.
