In a world where religious pluralism is a necessity of modern life, diverse religions exist for the diverse people populating the earth. Theologically, how do people of different faiths find liberation in their separate gods simultaneously? Stephen Kaplan answers this question with his new book, Different Paths, Different Summits. He presents a model for religous pluralism that does not fall victim to the criticisms of pluralist models.
Stephen Kaplan is professor of Indian and Comparative Religions at Manhattan College in New York City. He holds a doctorate from Temple University in Philadelphia. He is the author of numerous articles on the subject of holography and eastern religions.
