Religion in the Modern World—Celebrating Pluralism and Diversity, written by Ward, Keith

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review

Abstract

David Hume has it that diversity is difference, and when it comes to religion, difference means contradiction - when one religion claims that the world has always existed, whilst another claims that it was created, then there is a real disagreement, as they cannot be both true. When we think about the vast number of religions which have existed, and the diverse variety of views and claims which each has made, then the number of disagreements is increased exponentially. This is the problem of religious diversity, and it is the focus of Keith Ward’s book: is diversity a problem, can all religions be equally true, and how are they to interact?
