Synopsis

Is it possible to build tolerance and respect in a world seemingly being torn apart by religious beliefs? Too many seem convinced that their religion or faith is the only way to enlightenment, the only path to Truth.How can we possibly build a more just and peaceful society for us all. Can we find stronger inter-religious bonds of respect and understanding at the truly spiritual level of heart and soul?

What happens if we bring science into the equation? Supposing science shed its shackles of conventional materialistic dogma based on some shaky assumptions and looked with new eyes at religious beliefs such as prayer, distance healing and life after death? Is it possible that the latest ideas on empathy and consciousness could be narrowing the gulf between science and religion?

This book will help lay persons and clergy alike relate church tradition to the wider world of science, spirituality and interfaith issues. It will challenge the "spiritual but not religious" as well as those who thought they were secure in their own faith.
