A Volume in the Comparative Religious Ideas Project
Alternative formats available from:
Explores religious truth in a range of world religions and discusses the issue and philosophical implications of comparison itself.
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.

"The richly nuanced treatments of 'embodied truth' and other non-epistemological senses of truth provide many fresh insights, especially as the reader gets to compare them across world religions. " — John Morreall, author of Comedy, Tragedy, and Religion
