Overview

We live in a culture which has broadly rejected the possibility of absolute belief in one over-riding truth. And yet we are surrounded by people who do believe, who indeed are often intensely religious, but believe in different things. The current fragmentation of culture is a challenge to all major religions. Given that we have to live together, and given that many of our starting points are the same, even if our interpretations are different, how do we cope with the practical, day to day task of living and thriving in the same socio-political environment? This key dilemma is addressed by an international team of writers. There are essays on gender issues, sexuality, ecology, Buddhist belief and practice, social justice, and others.
