The Philosophical Problem of Religious Diversity, stated simply, is that the religions of the world contradict each other in important particulars, including, but not limited to, the existence of God, the nature of God, the number of gods, the role God or gods play in human affairs, and our destiny after death (Heaven? Hell? Purgatory? Reincarnation? Oblivion?). Religious believers typically solve the problem by embracing one religion and rejecting the rest. For atheists, the contradictions invalidate all religions equally.
But is there a third way? Could all religions be true? What if followers of just one religion and atheists who reject all religions are both wrong? Are there ways to think about reality in which diverse religious beliefs, even in their conflicting particulars, could all be simultaneously true?
So far, Jack Preston King has found four. In Could All Religions Be True?, King explores those theories in depth, then takes the reader on a rollicking journey outside the spiritual box, forging new and enlightening paths through religion, spirituality, the soul, the afterlife, mythology, out of body experiences, even Goddess worship and Jungian Psychology.
Could all religions be true? The short answer is Yes!
