The Last Element of a Post-Supersessionist Christology

Seeing Judaism Anew: Christianity's Sacred Obligation,
Ed. Mary C. Boys, Rowman and Littlefield, 2002
Chapter 11, "Jesus as the Universal Saviour" (pp. 127-137), page 136

Phan's last element in his post-supercessionist Christology is to urge the adoption of four types of dialogue as a living practice of what he calls G-d's consitutive and relational saving action in history:

a. the dialogue of life, where people strive to live in an open and neighbourly spirit, sharing their joys and sorrows, their human problems and preoccupations.

b. the dialogue of action, in which Christians and others collaborate for the integral development and liberation of people.

c. the dialogue of theological exchange, where specialists seek to deepen their understanding of their respective religious heritages, and to appreciate each other's spiritual values.

d. the dialogue of religious experience, where persons, rooted in their own religious traditions, share their spiritual riches, for instance, with regard to prayer and contemplation, faith andd ways of searching for G-d and the Absolute.

While the first three suggestions seem fairly non-controversial, the fourth sounds to me like a mistake. What do you think?
