Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungWhat is globalization anyway? What are spiritually minded people -- on all sides of the issue -- doing and saying about it? The economic and cultural dynamic of globalization is transforming the world at an unprecedented pace. But what exactly is globalization? What are its origins? What is its impact on our spiritual lives? This lucid introduction surveys the religious landscape, explaining in clear and nonjudgmental language the beliefs that motivate spiritual leaders, activists, theologians, academics, and others involved on all sides of the issue. Included are the points of view of: Baha'ms Buddhists Hindus Muslims Earth-based and tribal religions Jews Protestants Roman Catholics Unlike other books on this controversial issue, this easy-to-read introduction won't tell readers what to think. Instead, it provides the information they need to reach their own conclusions. This new edition includes a new Afterword and Discussion Guide designed especially for group use.
