   schema:description "In this book he explores how they came to understand the relationship between contemplative practice and social action in the context of their respective religious traditions, and he identifies the common features in their approach to engaged spirituality - a form of religious practice that could serve as a unifying paradigm for the world's religions in an age of globalization. The book concludes by showing how the influence of Merton and Nhat Hanh is reflected in the work of contemporaries such as Thomas Keating, David Steindl-Rast, A.T. Ariyaratne, and Joanna Macy."--Jacket."@en ;
