Abstract:

The gathering of bishops from all parts of the world at the Second Vatican Council symbolized not only the hope of Christian reunification but the desire for understanding of the non-Christian religions. In our approach to world religious beliefs, we must not only point out the differences among faiths, but we must primarily grasp the non-Christian meaning of eternal destiny and attempt to learn and profit from its spiritual heritage. This volume is a survey of the many non-Christian religious concepts and the ways in which their spiritual, cultural and philosophical ideas differ from those of Christianity.
