A Dialogue with Truth: . . . The Wise Call It by Many Names
Today the world is witnessing greater conflicts among people of the same beliefs, religions, cultures, and ideologies. Many are fighting in the name of God and yet killing his people despite the fact that no religion flows from the barrel of a gun, and no sacred scriptures sanction the killing of the innocent in the name of God. In the face of such conflict, no religion can afford to overlook the spirituality and legitimacy of these truths.
A Dialogue with Truth explores the way major world religions can have the potential to counteract the negative forces of conflict in the world and instead usher in an era of fellowship. Every religion advocates universal human values, and they each speak to a basic message for humankind--in fact, the origin and meaning of all prophetic revelation is the same, as these revelations have been revealed by God. Author Madan Mohan Verma shows how we can overcome conflict between religions by understanding each religion in its own distinctiveness and see its contribution to the unity of humankind.
The foundations of a pluralistic society--its culture and its legal and educational systems--require an acceptance of universal human values derived from spiritual scriptures and human experience. Therefore, the path forward is one where we seek positive dialogue at all levels and appreciate each other's points of view while upholding the spirit of oneness.
