This book offers a fresh perspective on religious difference by setting local challenges within the global picture, and exploring the meaning of religious resurgence for Western secularist ideas. Theory and practical engagement are combined in an imaginative Christian approach to responding to religious difference, without resorting to relativism.
At a time when some are fomenting divisions among religions, this wonderful book fosters understanding and compassion. Read it and you will feel more hopeful about the world.
