Abstract:

"The Sourcebook of the World's Religions began as a resource for the participants of the 1993 Parliament of the World's Religions in Chicago. It eventually grew - now in its third enlarged and updated edition - into the most comprehensive work on the variety of paths available to today's spiritual seekers and religious practitioners. In addition to showing how each religion or spiritual practice operates independently, the Sourcebook explores the intersection of the world's faiths and how the community of religions can come together to help the world." "The Sourcebook includes portraits of all the major religious traditions by leading scholars in each field, as well as essays on spiritual philosophies such as Wicca, Theosophy, and indigenous religions. Essays exploring building community among religions include pieces by Thomas Berry on the cosmology of the religions, Thomas Keating's guidelines for interreligious dialogue, and Marcus Braybrooke's survey of the interfaith movement." "With hundreds of articles, documents, prayers, and sacred texts, as well as unique directories of organizations and Web sites, this comprehensive Sourcebook offers an inspiring opportunity to explore other people's world views, beliefs, and commitments." "Certain to appeal to those seeking a truly comprehensive reference on religion and spirituality, the Sourcebook offers an unparalleled look at where religion is headed in the new millennium."--Jacket.
