Summary

In the face of continuing animosity between religions, this compilation of the common ethical and spiritual beliefs of eight of the world's major religions emphasizes the universality of our values. Excerpts from the sacred texts of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Confucianism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, and Buddhism address such universal topics as Love, Faith, Courage, Justice, Duty, and Forgiveness.
