Back cover copy

In a time of greater cultural interaction, Catholics are encouraged to understand the other great world religions, their beliefs and practices. Hinduism claims no founder and no single point of origin. As one of the world's oldest religions, Hinduism offers valuable insights into the human desire to unravel the "divine mysteries." Hindu-Catholic dialogue, ignited by respect for Mahatma Gandhi, profoundly enriches interfaith encounter today. To help Catholics prepare for religious dialogue, Dr. Peter Huff offers this introduction to Hinduism's origins, traditions, and practices in What Catholics Should Know About Hinduism. "Christians have perceived in Hindu devotion a remarkable example of the search for the 'unknown god' (Acts 17:23) that characterizes universal spiritual experience....Hindu reverence for the person of Jesus represents a possible bridge between the religions." Dr. Huff holds the T. L. James chair in Religious Studies at Centenary College of Louisiana.show more
