Woven on the Loom of Time
Woven on the Loom of Time
Description

From the Jacket

How are we to understand the many religious traditions of humankind? Should we view own religion as true and all others false? Should we regard all religions as the same? Should we view the religions as a cacophony? Professor Bryant explores these questions in this challenging book. He seeks to find a path through contemporary religious conflict that will lead us to great understanding and appreciation of the plurality of religious traditions. Woven on the Loom of Time: Many faith and One Divine Purpose argues that the religious traditions share a common purpose is unfolded differently in each religious tradition. Moreover the great religious traditions unfold on the loom of time where they clothe and reshape or humanity to make us fit for the Ultimate.

Professor Bryant unfolds his argument in five chapters. After an introductory chapter, he lays the foundation for an understanding of dialogical humanity that sees the religious traditions as a dialogue with transcendence. He then explores the multiform religious tradition-Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Confucian and Sikh-as nurseries for the formation of humanity. In the fifth chapter he unfolds a grammar of the spirit that sees religion as shaping and clothing humanity on the loom of time. In the Epilogue, Bryant restates his thesis in a poem concerning divine human destiny.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
