The Persistence of Religion: Comparative Perspectives on Modern Spirituality with Harvey G. Cox
The Persistence of Religion: Comparative Perspectives on Modern Spirituality with Harvey G. Cox

By Harvey G. Cox & Daisaku Ikeda , 2009

Despite the heavy reliance on science and technology in the contemporary world, religion still persists today. From the outset of the 21st century, religious influence can be seen in many areas. Religious extremism and intolerance, however, have in some cases caused conflicts and led to terrorism. What role, then, religion can play in today’s world of unprecedented cultural diversity? Cox, one of the most prominent theologians in the U.S. and Hollis Research Professor of Divinity at the Harvard Divinity School and Ikeda, from their different religious backgrounds—Christianity and Buddhism respectively—emphasize the importance of questioning together, mutual and frank discussions and learning from each other with open minds. Discussing not only religious matters but also a wide range of topics such as non-violence, the internet society, nuclear abolition and university education, Cox and Ikeda provide insight into how religion can contribute to creating a world of respect for humanity and a peaceful society.
