Buddhism, Christianity and the question of creation : karmic or divine? by Perry Schmidt-Leukel( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the world created by a divine creator? Or is it the constant product of karmic forces?

Understanding Buddhism by Perry Schmidt-Leukel( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today Buddhism is often presented as a religion without dogmas and commandments, without God and without any need to believe, tolerating all and everything - as no "religion" at all, but as a way of life most suitable to the needs of post-modern Westerners. But is this an accurate image? In this book Buddhism is introduced as a genuine religion, gentle and powerful, being as demanding as it is consoling."--Jacket
Islam and inter-faith relations : the Gerald Weisfeld lectures 2006( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this succinct, clarifying volume, five world-renowned Muslim theologians meet with scholars of Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism to engage in a vivid dialogue. The Muslim realm once stretched from Spain to China. Islam encountered and connected with a vast spectrum of different cultures and today is obviously an incredibly significant influence across the globe. What can Islam give to and what might Islam receive from other great faiths? What are the major points of conflict and how can these be resolved? Each chapter follows a similar pattern of presenting an Islamic view, followed by the view of another world religion. Then both contributors to each chapter reflect on the shared values as well as the conflicting areas, looking to possible resolutions for the future. Each chapter features suggested further reading to point students and other readers in the right direction for further study. -- Publisher description

Interreligious comparisons in religious studies and theology : comparison revisited( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can religions be compared? For decades the discipline of religious studies was based on the assumption that they can. Postmodern and postcolonial reflections, however, raised significant doubts. In social and cultural studies the investigation of the particular often took precedence over a comparative perspective. Interreligious Comparisons in Religious Studies and Theology questions whether religious studies can survive if it ceases to be comparative religion. Can it do justice to a globalized world if it is limited on the specific and turns a blind eye on the general? While comparative approaches have come under strong pressure in religious studies, they have started flourishing in Theology. Comparative theology practices interfaith dialogue by means of comparative research. This volume asks whether theology and religious studies are able to mutually benefit from their critical and constructive reflections. Can postcolonial criticism of neutrality and objectivity in religious studies create new links with the decidedly perspectival approach of comparative theology? In this collection scholars from theology and religious studies discuss the methodology of interreligious comparison in the light of recent doubts and current objections. Together with the contributors, Perry Schmidt-Leukel and Andreas Nehring argue that after decades of critique, interreligious comparison deserves to be reconsidered, reconstructed and reintroduced
