Religious Truth : A Volume in the Comparative Religious Ideas Project
This multifaceted study compares how six traditions interpret religious truth, and how it has come to be illustrated so diversely in the Chinese religion, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Philosophical essays integrate the comparisons, ask what religious truth might be in terms of a contemporary defensible theory, and reflect on what all this shows for the nature of religion and its study. Contributors include Francis X. Clooney, S.J., Malcolm David Eckel, Paul Fredriksen, S. Nomanul Haq, Joseph Kanofsky, Livia Kohn, James E. Miller, Robert Cummings Neville, Hugh Nicholson, Anthony J. Saldarini, John Thatamanil, and Wesley J. Wildman.

"The richly nuanced treatments of 'embodied truth' and other non-epistemological senses of truth provide many fresh insights, especially as the reader gets to compare them across world religions." -- John Morreall, author of Comedy, Tragedy, and Religion
