Love in the Religions of the World PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Love in the Religions of the World free pdf The study of comparative religion is no longer a matter merely for those interested in religion - it is a matter of concern for everybody. For irrespective of whether one believes in God, religion is a major characteristic of identity. And in the post 9/11 world, every educated person is aware of how important it is to understand what others believe. This collection of essays by international scholars emerged from an intense and powerful dialogue at the University of Hong Kong about love in the major religions of the world. Eschewing the comforting, but ultimately erroneous and dangerous idea that all religions believe more or less the same thing, each essay examines the role and nature of love in a major religion of the world. It is an invaluable guide for students, teachers and the general reader wanting to cut through the morass of doctrinal differences and emphases in the world's religions. It also makes an important contribution to the urgent issue of dialogue amongst faiths and cultures.
