Religion is one of the most dominant forces on the world stage, cited in international affairs from global terrorism to disputes in Pakistan, Lebanon, and Israel. This book with over 60 images illustrating the vibrancy of religious life around the world and down the ages, represents an important contribution to the growing effort to live together peacefully in a global society. Carefully exploring the commonalities between religions as well as the differences that make each spiritual tradition distinct, Bushrui offers a unique opportunity to appreciate the rich veriety of religious paths that have linked human beings with the sacred, from the spiritual traditions of the first peoples and the ancient cilizations of Egypt, Greece, and Mesoamerica, to the beliefs and practices of today's world faiths. Professor Suheil Bushrui teaches the history of religions at the University of Maryland, MD. He is the latest recipient of the Temple of Understanding Interfaith Education Award for his work encouraging religious understanding.
