What to expect

The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality Series

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 sometimes diminish to a 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.
