Reviews

"Volf brilliantly weaves several strands of argument into an ambitious brief for the positive functions of religion in today's global village, where the negative consequences of religion are too often written in the blood of innocents."-Publishers Weekly, starred review Publishers Weekly "Volf convincingly tackles one of the most important issues of the twenty-first century: how we can have a peaceful religious pluralism together with healthy globalisation. He not only gives the facts and analyses the situation perceptively, he also has the depth of understanding of a range of religions to produce a practical way forward that is both realistic and attractive."-David F. Ford, University of Cambridge -- David F. Ford "Miroslav Volf's prophetic voice brings a new perspective to the question of what it means to live the good life in a world shaped by globalization."-John J. DeGioia, Georgetown University -- John J. DeGioia "In Flourishing, Miroslav Volf offers us an enthralling analysis of the mutual interplay between globalization and the world's great religions, along with an inspiring vision of how great faiths can be enlarged rather than threatened by diversity. An outstanding and timely work by one of the great theologians of our time."-Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks -- Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks "The contemporary globalized world offers a bewildering scene: horrifying acts of religious hatred and cruelty exist alongside zones where people of different religions live in unprecedented mutual respect, even friendly exchange. Digging deep into the sources of his own, Christian faith, Volf offers an insightful and penetrating answer to both these questions."-Charles Taylor, McGill University -- Charles Taylor "Make no mistake: everyone who cares about either the church or the world should read this book."-Greg Forster, Gospel Coalition -- Greg Forster Gospel Coalition "This is a powerful book. It offers a strong critique of attempts to merge religion and politics, even as it affirms the need for public engagement in pursuit of flourishing of the entire creation. Take and read. It's that important! In this book a path toward peace is revealed."-Robert D. Cornwall, Englewood Review of Books -- Robert D. Cornwall Englewood Review of Books
