About this product
- DescriptionWhile many people shy away from talking about politics or religion in polite company, author Jeremy Rosen has made religious discourse and education his life's work. An Orthodox Jewish rabbi and professor of religion at institutions around the world, Rosen sets out to make a case for the utility of religion in societies...and its ability to function as a uniting, rather than dividing, force on Earth. In accessible language and grounded in years of academic study, Rosen asks important questions about the aim of world religions and what they attempt to achieve, before offering reasons why they often fail-sometimes miserably. Rosen ackwledges religion is inherently mystical, but that does t mean its adherents can't also exercise rationality and logic. He makes the case that religion can be compatible with modern life, and it can be a vehicle for promoting tolerance and peace among people. A wonderful tool for anyone seeking to understand more about religion and religious people, Can We Talk About Religion? asks important questions and makes eloquent arguments for the value of faith in societies around the world.
