Sourcebook of the World's Religions: An Interfaith Guide to Religion and Spirituality (Sourcebook of the World's Religions, 3rd ed)User Review - Book Verdict
Beversluis, editor and publisher of CoNexus Press, edited the first edition of this work (A Sourcebook for Earth's Community of Religions) for participants in the 1993 Parliament of the World's Religions. This third edition is the single best resource yet for information on the growing interfaith movement. The volume has four parts: "Who Are We?" introduces each religious tradition; "Becoming a Community of Religions" provides background on the history and purposes of interfaith dialog; "Choosing Our Future" focuses on the role of religion in creating a culture of peace, respect for the environment, and human rights; and "Selected Resources for the Community of Religions" provides Internet and organizational directories, as well as an index of major areas of focus. This volume lacks the occasional useful organization (e.g., the Bah '! International Community's Office for the Environment), but as a source for basic information on religions, international documents articulating a global ethics of cooperation among spiritual traditions, and primary areas of focus for each tradition, it is essential for all academic, public, and theological libraries.DWilliam P.
