Religious Truth: A Volume in the Comparative Religious Ideas Project
Robert Cummings Neville
SUNY Press, Jan 1, 2001 - Religion - 339 pages
This multifaceted study compares how six traditions interpret religious truth, and how it has come to be illustrated so diversely in the Chinese religion, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Philosophical essays integrate the comparisons, ask what religious truth might be in terms of a contemporary defensible theory, and reflect on what all this shows for the nature of religion and its study.
