The essays in this volume represent a wide range of perspectives on the role and responsibility of the world's religions in shaping the individual, the family and society, and in protecting and fruitfully interacting with the environment.

The inter-religious perspective of the volume is conveyed by Francis D'Sa: "It is not a matter of choosing between teo or more worldviews. At this stage of human consciousness we cannot afford to lose, overlook or neglect the insights of any one of them."

Ninian Smart reminds us that the various worldviews are "a set of resources" to be used by each of us "in the ongoing spiritual and intellectual life of faith." Zalman Schachter-Shalomi echoes this in his comparison of the importance of religious diversity with that of the biological gene pool: "Every species is important, so is every religion." From Protestant and Catholic Christianity, to Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, Confucianism, spiritual feminism, and T.S. Elliot's "The Cocktail Party," these essays represent the vital dialogue which occasioned them, and from which they emerged.

The author and co-author of eight books, including The Nothingness Beyond God (Paragon House), Dimensions of Moral Education (University of Toronto Press), Becoming Bamboo (McGill-Queen's University Press), God, the self, and Nothingness (Paragon House), and Watsuji Tetsuro's Rinrigaku (SUNY Press). He is a memeber of the Philosophy Department at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

He teaches Jewish Studies and Comparative Mysticism at the University of Florida, and serves as Director of the university's Center for Jewish Studies. A professor and a rabbi, he lectures and offers workshops on applied mysticism, meditation, self-development and relationships.
