The study of comparative religion is no longer a matter merely for
those interested in religion - it is a matter of concern for
everybody. For irrespective of whether one believes in God,
religion is a major characteristic of identity. And in the post
9.11 world, every educated person is aware of how important it is
to understand what others believe. This collection of essays by
international scholars emerged from an intense and powerful
dialogue at the University of Hong Kong about love in the major
religions of the world. Eschewing the comforting, but ultimately
erroneous and dangerous idea that all religions believe more or
less the same thing, each essay examines the role and nature of
love in a major religion of the world. It is an invaluable guide
for students, teachers and the general reader wanting to cut
through the morass of doctrinal differences and emphases in the
worlda s religions. It also makes an important contribution to the
urgent issue of dialogue amongst faiths and cultures.
