The major religions of the world are shaping our lives and our planet in significant ways. Those who see religions as intolerant and divisive may consider this negative, perhaps even dangerous, news. However, Miroslav Volf proposes a counter-narrative: that religions actually make vital, positive contributions to helping communities flourish. Volf taps into the deep resources of his own Christian faith to offer a profound vision for how Christians can live in our pluralistic world and interact faithfully and peacefully with their global neighbors.
