Denounced by the New York Times as an unmitigated rascal while simultaneously being lauded as a reincarnation of Gautama Buddha himself Henry Steel Olcott was a friend to Madame Blavatsky and an indefatigable reformer and culture broker between East and West This book is an engaging study of spiritual quest, No description available, At the dawn of the twenty first century dizzying scientific and technological advancements interconnected globalized economies and even the so called New Atheists have done nothing to change one thing our world remains furiously religious For good and for evil religion is the single greatest influence in the world We accept as self evident that competing economic systems capitalist or communist or clashing political parties Republican or Democratic propose very different solutions to our planet s problems So why do we pretend that the world s religious traditions are different paths to the same God We blur the sharp distinctions between religions at our own peril argues religion scholar Stephen Prothero and it is time to replace na ve hopes of interreligious unity with deeper knowledge of religious differences p In i Religious Literacy i Prothero demonstrated how little Americans know about their own religious traditions and why the world s religions should be taught in public schools Now in i God Is Not One i Prothero provides readers with this much needed content about each of the eight great religions To claim that all religions are the same is to misunderstand that each attempts to solve a different human problem For example p blockquote Islam the problem is pride the solution is submission br Christianity the problem is sin the solution is salvation br Confucianism the problem is chaos the solution is social order br Buddhism the problem is suffering the solution is awakening br Judaism the problem is exile the solution is to return to God blockquote Prothero reveals each of these traditions on its own terms to create an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to better understand the big questions human beings have asked for millennia and the disparate paths we are taking to answer them today A bold polemical response to a generation of misguided scholarship i God Is Not One i creates a new context for understanding religion in the twenty first century and disproves the assumptions most of us make about the way the world s religions work, The United States has long been described as a nation of immigrants but it is also a nation of religions in which Muslims and Methodists Buddhists and Baptists live and work side by side This book explores that nation of religions focusing on how four recently arrived religious communities Muslims Buddhists Hindus and Sikhs are shaping and in turn shaped by American values br br For a generation scholars have been documenting how the landmark legislation that loosened immigration restrictions in catalyzed the development of the United States as a nation of Buddhists Confucianists and Taoists as well as Christians as Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark put it The contributors to this volume take U S religious diversity not as a proposition to be proved but as the truism it has become Essays address not whether the United States is a Christian or a multireligious nation clearly it is both but how religious diversity is changing the public values rites and institutions of the nation and how those values rites and institutions are affecting religions centuries old yet relatively new in America This conversation makes an important contribution to the intensifying public debate about the appropriate role of religion in American politics and society br br br Contributors br Ihsan Bagby University of Kentucky br Courtney Bender Columbia University br Stephen Dawson Forest Virginia br David Franz University of Virginia br Hien Duc Do San Jose State University br James Davison Hunter University of Virginia br Prema A Kurien Syracuse University br Gurinder Singh Mann University of California Santa Barbara br Vasudha Narayanan University of Florida br Stephen Prothero Boston University br Omid Safi Colgate University br Jennifer Snow Pasadena California br Robert A F Thurman Columbia University br R Stephen Warner University of Illinois at Chicago br Duncan Ryuken Williams University of California Berkeley
