Somaiya Bharatiya Sanskriti Peetham, Mumbai and Focolare Movement, Italy. This symposium was held from 14 to 19 June 2002 at International Mariapolis Centre, Castelgandolfo, Rome.

A brief introduction in the book contains invaluable information of both the religions. Thus this book presents a spectrum of various aspects of devotion in Hinduism and Christianity.
