Product Description


What Does Islam Mean In Today's World? Religion, Politics, Spirituality argues that modern Christianity has nothing to fear from traditional Islam: the two religions have common enemies, concerns, and are united in their opposition to immoralities such as materialism. The general public tends to associate Islam with terrorism: this book considers its underlying connections to Christian beliefs and examines Islam's role in modern societies. Chapters include surveys of art and culture as they discuss modern religious bias in a pick recommended for any spirituality and Middle East cultural collection. (Midwest Book Review)

What Does Religion Mean in Today's World? June 25 2012
By Samuel Bendeck Sotillos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dismal as the prospects for integral interfaith dialogue and mutual understanding may be, when viewed through the lens of the mass media syndicates, this volume by Dr. Stoddart, who has been an ardent student of these matters for most of his life, functions like a beacon amidst the contemporary wasteland. Dr. Stoddart leads his reader through the complex and multifaceted themes with a penetrating discernment rooted in the timeless truths of the perennial philosophy. This book is a must read for anyone interested either in Islam or religion in general.
