9780275965020: Caring for Future Generations: Jewish, Christian and Islamic Perspectives (Praeger Studies on the 21st Century)

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are increasingly discovering that what unites them is more important than what divides them. Many now acknowledge that an interreligious dialogue going beyond faith and spiritual fellowship to a common struggle for justice can enrich a holistic vision through a complementarity of perspectives. It is this spirit of interreligious dialogue that has inspired this volume and the conference on which it is based. Using as a focal point the conceptual framework of an abiding respect for human rights, in particular the rights of future generations, the contributors demonstrate that the three monotheistic faiths share several basic convictions, such as the need to protect our Earth for the benefit of our progeny, the fundamental unity of the human family, and the unity of past, present, and future generations.
