9780061571282: God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World

In God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World, New York Times bestselling author of Religious Literacy and religion scholar Stephen Prothero argues that persistent attempts to portray all religions as different paths to the same God overlook the distinct problem that each tradition seeks to solve. Delving into the different problems and solutions that Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Confucianism, Yoruba Religion, Daoism and Atheism strive to combat, God is Not One is an indispensable guide to the questions human beings have asked for millennia--and to the disparate paths we are taking to answer them today. Readers of Huston Smith and Karen Armstrong will find much to ponder in God is Not One.

Product Description:

In the twenty-first century, religion remains the single greatest influencein the world. But, argues religion scholar Stephen Prothero, persistentattempts to portray all religions as different paths to the same God overlookthe distinct human problem that each seeks to solve. For example: Islam: the problem is pride / the solution is submissionChristianity: the problem is sin / the solution is salvationBuddhism: the problem is suffering / the solution is awakeningJudaism: the problem is exile / the solution is to return to GodGod Is Not One is an indispensable guide to the questions human beingshave asked for millennia--and to the disparate paths we are taking toanswer them today.

Review:

"Provocative, thoughtful, fiercely intelligent and, for both believing and nonbelieving, formal and informal students of religion, a must-read."--Booklist

"Stephen Prothero has done it again. This is a powerfully-written, paradigm-shifting book. How religious differences can be a bridge of cooperation rather than a bomb of destruction is one of the most important challenges of our era, and Prothero is as good a guide as you will find."--Eboo Patel, founder and executive director of Interfaith Youth Core and author of Acts of Faith

"God is Not One is 2010's must-read for anyone religiously illiterate....Don't know much about the world's faiths? Get a copy now."--The Daily Beast

"An urgently needed and very nicely done corrective to politically correct nonsense."--Rodney Stark, author of Discovering God: The Origins of the Great Religions and the Evolution of Faith

"A very much needed book!"--Miroslav Volf, Professor, Yale University, and author of Exclusion and Embrace

"This book could well be the most highly readable, accurate, and up-to-date introduction to the world's major religions."--Harvey Cox, Hollis Research Professor of Divinity, Harvard University, and author of The Future of Faith
