God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 days from Our Distributor
In the twenty-first century, religion remains the single greatest influence in the world. But, argues religion scholar Stephen Prothero, persistent attempts to portray all religions as different paths to the same God overlook the distinct human problem that each seeks to solve. For example:
Islam: the problem is pride / the solution is submission
Christianity: the problem is sin / the solution is salvation
Buddhism: the problem is suffering / the solution is awakening
Judaism: the problem is exile / the solution is to return to God
God Is Not One is an indispensable guide to the questions human beings have asked for millenniaand to the disparate paths we are taking to answer them today.
