Bringing together in one volume the work of some of the world's most prominent religious scholars, this is a clear and concise exploration of the religious perspective on the meaning of life.
Written in non-technical language, this collection of essays by such distinguished thinkers as John Hick, Huston Smith, Ninian Smart, Sallie McFague and Keith Ward not only addresses the distinct views of the major religious traditions, but also offers comparative analysis and original insight. The result is a detailed but accessible study that underlines the power of cumulative wisdom to educate and enlighten, and allows the reader to arrive at an informed understanding of the meaning of life.
