  1. We often have great strings here. Several here, including myself, have enjoyed the book "How Wide the Divide"--a published conversation between an LDS professor and an Evangelical one. Bob MIllet (BYU) and Greg Johnson (evangelical pastor) engage in public dialogues from time to time. Then there is this: http://janariess.religionnews.com/2015/05/22/mormons-and-evangelicals-answering-the-hardball-questions-about-our-faith/ These are great to see. Yet, I'm guessing most here who have engaged in religious discussions with those of other faiths would describe the encounters as awkward, defensive, angry, unkind, or, at least, unpleasant. We could spiritualize the descriptions by saying there was a spirit of contention, or that the other person's demeanor was un-Christ-like. Why is quality interfaith dialogue so rare and so difficult--especially in person?
