We live in a diverse world filled with many religions and ethnicities that is becoming ever so globalized. Added to this, or maybe because of this, is the fact that many of the world religions are coming into contact more frequently. Some people ask “What are the similarities and differences between these faiths?” Hartford Seminary seeks to foster an environment that creates a love for interreligious dialogue and understanding. But where do we start? One beginning point is to understand the similarities and differences between the world religions, in this case specifically the Abrahamic faiths, and see how they are interrelated and intertwined. The purpose of this talk is to do just that with specific relation to the Oneness of God as understood in the Abrahamic tradition.
