Ո Get God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World--and Why Their Differences Matter - Kindle edition by Stephen Prothero. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. for free ⚩ Book Author Stephen Prothero ⚶ Exclusive A Letter from Stephen Prothero On my last visit to Jerusalem, I struck up a conversation with an elderly man in the Muslim Quarter As a shopkeeper, he seemed keen to sell me jewelry As a Sufi mystic, he seemed even keener to engage me in matters of the spirit He told me that religions are human inventions, so we must avoid the temptation of worshipping Islam rather than Allah What matters is opening yourself up to the mystery that goes by the word God, and that can be done in any religion As he tempted me with turquoise and silver, he asked me what I was doing in Jerusalem When I told him I was researching a book on the worlds religions, he put down the jewelry, looked at me intently, and, placing a finger on my chest for emphasis, said, Do not write false things about the religions As I wrote God is Is Not One, I came back repeatedly to this conversation I never wavered from trying to write true things, but I knew that some of the things I was writing he would consider false Mystics often claim that the great religions differ only in the inessentials They may be different paths but they are ascending the same mountain and they converge at the peak Throughout this book I give voice to these mystics the Daoist sage Laozi, who wrote his classic the Daodejing just before disappearing forever into the mountains the Sufi poet Rumi, who instructs us to gamble everything for love and the Christian mystic Julian of Norwich, who revels in the feminine aspects of God But my focus is not on these spiritual superstars It is on ordinary religious folkthe stories they tell, the doctrines they affirm, and the rituals they practice And these stories, doctrines, and rituals could not be different Christians do not go on the hajj to Mecca Jews do not affirm the doctrine of the Trinity and neither Buddhists nor Hindus trouble themselves about sin or salvation Of course, religious differences trouble us, since they seem to portend, if not war itself, then at least rumors thereof But as I researched and wrote this book I came to appreciate how opening our eyes to religious differences can help us appreciate the unique beauty of each of the great religions the radical freedom of the Daoist wanderer, the contemplative way into death of the Buddhist monk, and the joy in the face of the divine life of the Sufi shopkeeper I plan to send my Sufi shopkeeper a copy of this book I have no doubt he will disagree with parts of it But I hope he will recognize my effort to avoid writing false things, even when I disagree with friends Stephen ProtheroExpressing his astonishment, Prothero Religious Literacy arrives late at the party that has been celebrating for years the diversity and plurality of the world s religions Although he is correct in asserting that an entire generation of scholars, teachers, and interested readers have claimed in the interest of religious tolerance that the world s religions were simply different paths to the same one God, such a claim functions as little than a red herring in what is otherwise a useful introduction to the world s religions Once past that assertion, Prothero sets up a helpful model for examining each religion on its own terms he explores a problem that dominates the religion, the religion s solution to the problem, the technique the religion uses to move from problem to solution, and the exemplar who charts a path from problem to solution For example, in Buddhism the problem is suffering the solution is nirvana the technique is the Noble Eightfold Path and the exemplars are the arhats, bodhisattvas, and lamas Despite his navet about contemporary interreligious dialogue, Prothero s survey is a useful introduction to eight of the world s great religions Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
