This volume consists of thirty-three original articles, written by experts representing a wide variety of religious and philosophical perspectives, which cover numerous issues in religious diversity and draw readers into the heart of the current dialogue. There exists today a rich and abounding diversity of religions in the world—a diversity with respect to both belief and practice. But it is a diversity that poses many challenges and raises many questions, most especially in a pluralistic milieu. How do we engage in effective dialogue with religious others? What should public education reflect in a religiously pluralistic context? What role might the diversity of religions play in developing a global ethic? How do the various religious traditions deal with the plurality of religious belief and practice? What role does gender play in such discourse? The book is divided into three parts addressing various issues related to religious diversity and differing perspectives on the subject. articles in the first part trace the general features of religious diversity discussions from four different fields: history, religious studies, philosophy, and sociology. Part two explores key theological, philosophical, sociological, and public policy issues relevant to religious diversity. The third and final part provides differing analyses of religious diversity from multi-faith, gender, and global points of view.
