A groundbreaking spiritual conversation that invites you to step beyond the limits of any one faith into a global spirituality. Long description: The World Wisdom Bible is a global spiritual conversation about the nature of life and how best to live it. Drawing on ancient and timeless texts from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, and Taoism, this compendium of sacred texts juxtaposes seemingly divergent teachings to create a spiritual collage of wisdom that crosses religious boundaries, and invites the reader to step beyond the limits of any one faith into a global spirituality. Organized by themes--The Absolute, Justice, Wisdom, Compassion, Spiritual Practice, Ethical Living, and more--The World Wisdom Bible is more than an anthology of diverse teachings; it is a new scripture for those who describe themselves as spiritual independents, spiritual but not religious, and nones. Where conventional Bibles and scriptures speak to believers of one religion or another, The World Wisdom Bible speaks to seekers of every faith and none.
