In this book the authors, a Christian theologian and an atheistic Buddhist philosopher, examine the five major world religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam - in order to demonstrate that each is a particular expression of one, common world theology.
"N. Ross Reat and Edmond F. Perry have produced a striking and original volume, which will be especially of concern to Christians and other theologians and intellectuals who wish to come to terms with the new world order. For world civilization, now emerging, demands a new deal between religions (and ideologies). They well prepare the way." Ninian Smart, University of California, Santa Barbara "[The authors'] arguments are complex and full-bodied....the makings of a minor classic in its field." Library Journal "This is an original, significant, and well-informed contribution to the growing literature on interreligious dialogue." Religious Studies Review
