Chapter 8 A Global Community
In search of a sustainable vision of global harmony, Daniel Helminiak offers an honest and careful analysis of the divisiveness of traditional religion as most people know it, and its failure to meet the needs of a global community. He proposes a well-differentiated analysis of our common spirituality, which lies at the core of both religious commitments and secular humanistic pursuits. This book is an important contribution to the current dialogue on human wholeness, and on what constitutes a responsible approach to life in a globalizing world.

This book is brilliant. The scholarship, communication, and thinking are superb. A real advance for the field of cultural psychology and for the global community.
