Description

Studies in religion are flourishing internationally, and one of the central topics discussed in the field today-perhaps the most discussed topic-is religious diversity. With the influx of religious traditions in the West and the growing diversity of religious adherents and practitioners worldwide, people across the globe are currently nterested in exploring issues in religious diversity. The present work is a response to this ubiquitous interest. It is a substantial volume of thirty-three original chapters covering the full range of issues on religious diversity. Each chapter makes a state-of-the-art contribution by providing a survey and critical analysis of the topic, as well as creative reflections on where discussions in that domain are headed. The chapters are crafted by recognized experts in the field who represent a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds. Furthermore, the work has a broad, interdisciplinary audience, serving serious-minded scholars as well as students and others interested in the major themes of the field. The general aim of the volume is to present the central discussions in the discipline today and to direct future discussions on the various topics.show more
