«’A useful resource for those seeking to defend the role of religious faith in the modern world, based on the argument that you do not have to be crazy to be religious.’ Oliver Leaman, University of Kentucky, USA ’A fascinating collection of essays which don't seek any formal comparison between the various practices of the major religions, so much as relate them through juxtaposition. What emerges is a multi-faceted panorama of world faiths as they are lived, in critical, sensible dialogue with their intellectual and political contexts. If you thought religion was superstitious clap-trap or on the way out - think again. Religion flourishes in myriad adaptive and culturally resonant forms. And this collection of essays showcases a variety of them.’ Graham Ward, University of Oxford, UK ’This valuable book clearly demonstrates that between religious extremism and exclusive secularism, there is indeed the balanced path of sensible religion. Coming from a great variety of faith and personal backgrounds, the contributing writers provide a comprehensive and compelling explanation of the actual and possible good that comes from religion. Whatever your religion, or if you have no religion, reading this book is a brilliant way of understanding the religious motivations (and misrepresentations) which affect the vast majority of humanity.’ HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan»
