Religious Imaginations : How Narratives of Faith Are Shaping Today's World Hardback

Edited by James Walters


The causes of global transitions are numerous and complex.

Market globalization, technology, climate change and post-colonial political forces are all forging a new world.

But caught up in the mix are some powerful religious narratives that are galvanizing peoples and reimagining political and social order.

Some are repressive, fundamentalist imaginations such as the so-called Islamic Caliphate.

Others could be described as post-religious such as the evolution of universal human rights out ofthe European Christian tradition.

But the question of the compatibility of these religious world views, particularly those that have emerged out of the Abrahamic faith traditions, is perhaps the most pressing issue in global stability today.

What scope for dialogue is there between the Jewish, Muslim and Christians ways of imagining the future?

How can we engage with these multiple imaginations to create a shared peaceful future?

This is an interdisciplinary volume of both new and well-knownscholars exploring how religious narratives interact with the contemporary geopolitical climate.
