Along Edges: Religion in South Africa : Bushman, Christian, Buddhist
Looking at contrast and similarity between the above three religions and their influence in South Africa, the central question in this book looks to the future. It asks whether it is possible to enter a new era in religious history without losing cultural tradition in the face of rapid social change. In juxtaposing these religions, the author finds points of contact between views that, at first glance, seem to be opposites.
