In the face of the growing threat from collisions of faith world-wide, this manifesto is a call to embrace religious pluralism.
Martin E. Marty is a renowned commentator on religious matters, the author of over 50 books, winner of the National Book Award, and the recipient of 74 honorary doctorates
Demonstrates that citizens, religions and identities can survive in radically pluralist settings
Accessibly written, it tackles people’s fears of religious pluralism
Argues that those involved in collisions of faith need to risk hospitality towards one another, as opposed to the conventional plea for tolerance
Pays particular attention to the conflicts that affect or occur within those nations whose politics can be called republican, open, democratic, liberal, or free – particularly the UK, the US, and Western Europe.
