Abstract

Religion is a great force that can be for human development when properly channeled. Unfortunately, instead of being an agent of unity, religion has become an agent of division. Many lives and properties have been lost in the name of religion. Africa in general and Nigeria in particular, has experienced series of religious crises which have destabilized the government and the economy. Against this backdrop, this paper seeks to substantiate the claim that proper religious dialogue is the answer to the incessant religious conflicts that we have experienced and are still experiencing. The paper makes some recommendations and concludes that there cannot be any meaningful  development without proper interreligious peace and harmony.

Key Words: Dialogue, Prejudice, Religion, Religious Dialogue.
