'A much-needed and illuminating discussion of both the philosophical and social issues of religious freedom and diversity in contemporary societies.' Keith Ward, University of Oxford
'This is the best single-authored overview and contribution to philosophical reflection on religious diversity in print. For both newcomers and experts, Religious Diversity offers an insightful engagement with questions about the truth of different religions, the role of religion in pluralistic democracies, and the political and cultural significance of religious diversity.' Charles Taliaferro, Chair of Philosophy, St Olaf College
'The book is well written and structured and serves as a compendium of ten essays, building on historical and political examples as well as historical and contemporary positions in Philosophy and the Social Sciences. As such it is an interdisciplinary and comprehensive source to use in university courses.' Sarah J. Jahn, Entangled Religions
