Most world religions have similar origins and cycles of development. Their differences reflect history and culture, as well as various philosophies and theologies. We will take a closer look at the Religions of the Book - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - and explore the Eastern faith traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism, Shinto and Confucianism. Our differences will inform our relationships. What we have in common may inspire!
