Summary

The longstanding ideas of humanism, agnosticism, and atheism have increasingly challenged traditional religious doctrines or practices. Yet reason alone often fails to secure the commitments and values of a healthy personal and communal life; spiritual and emotional life can diminish to the dangerous level of nihilism and despair. Meanwhile, some theologians have challenged the "truth" of any religion with the radical view that all beliefs are equally true. This audio presentation explores how religious commitment can be reconciled with life in a rational, skeptical world.

The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality series describes the beliefs, religious practices, and the spiritual and moral commitments of the world's great religious traditions. It also describes a religion's way of understanding scripture, identifies its outstanding thinkers, and discusses its attitude and relationship to society.

Boring

This audiobook droned on and on with each historical fact following another. It seemed like nothing more than mixing a bag of philosophy terms into into every conceivable combination. Sorry... I found this boring.
