Cox-Ikeda Dialogue Published in Japan

TOKYO, Japan: Ushio Publishing Co. has released Niju-isseiki no heiwa to shukyo o kataru (The Persistence of Religion: Comparative Perspectives on Modern Spirituality), in Japanese, between Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard University, and Daisaku Ikeda. The authors examine a broad range of topics, from religion and its capacity for inspiration and empowerment in the modern age, to the imperative of interfaith and intercivilizational discourse in building a genuinely global society.
