The Pluralist Paradigm: Democracy and Religion in the 21st Century
Sondra Myers, Patrice Brodeur
University of Scranton Press, 2006 - Religion - 164 pages
As recent elections in Iran and Iraq have shown, the increasing diversity of religious practices around the world may redefine democracy as we know it—leaving many of us to wonder just how compatible religion and democracy really are. The Pluralist Paradigm explores this difficult question with essays from a variety of disciplines, including theology, philosophy, political science, sociology, and ethics. It will be an ideal reference for anyone concerned with fostering tolerance in a progressively global society.
