Overview

Problems of Religious Diversity analyzes the philosophical questions raised by the fact that many religions in the world often appear to contradict each other in doctrine and practice. The volume distinguishes the differences between religious and non-religious responses to these questions, and evaluates the fundamental philosophical underpinnings of these contemporary debates. It further discusses what a religion is and how diversity in religion can be understood, and examines the concepts of religious truth and salvation. Questions considered include:


  • Can there be more than one true religion?

  • What is the relation between commitment to one's faith and tolerance of other faiths?

  • How does one's awareness of diverse religious claims affect the degree or strength of belief in one's own religion?

  • In what ways can the concept of salvation and its prospects be construed in response to the contradictory nature of different religions?
