God is not one : the eight rival religions that run the world / Stephen Prothero.
Why do we pretend that the world's religious traditions are different paths to the same God? Scholar Stephen Prothero argues that it is time to replace naïve hopes of interreligious unity with deeper knowledge of religious differences. He maintains that each religion attempts to solve a different human problem, and examines each of these traditions on its own terms to create an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to better understand the big questions.
