Overview

The Great Religions: Essential Questions is an invitation to discover and better understand four of the most influential spiritual faiths: Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, and Tibetan Buddhism. And in his introductory essay, Bruce Feiler�the best-selling author of six books, including Walking the Bible and Learning to Bow�explains why religion has moved to the forefront of public discourse. Feiler, whose most recent book, Abraham, was featured on the cover of Time magazine and has generated interfaith discussions around the world, also explores the rise of interfaith relationships in our increasingly divisive world.

Why does God allow evil? What is the hereafter? Is religion necessary? These are some of the essential questions to which the four authors, each representing a different belief, respond in a clear and accessible manner.This book offers a contemporary response to our spiritual questions while helping us to decipher the ritual and cultural symbols that constitute our heritage.
