Religiös besinning och besinningslös religion. Tankar om terror i Guds namn, buddhism och global andlighet

Geels, Antoon LU (2007)
Abstract
Religion can motivate people to altruistic activity in the service of mankind. But it can also instigate terror attacks. When does religion become senseless? Several chapters are devoted to a discussion of Buddhism and its contribution to well-being. In a final chapter the author presents his ideas about global spirituality. Representatives of the five great world religions come together in order to prepare a (fictive) interreligious dialogue, focusing on controversial issues as well as on common spiritual denominators, which can lay a foundation for a new global spirituality.
