Values the World's Religions Share and How They Can Transform Us
by Nancy J. Thompson
Touching the Elephant: Values the World's Religions Share and How They Can Transform Us by Nancy J. Thompson bridges two realms: the sacred and the secular. Thompson does not want to convert readers, nor tell readers that they should believe in God, or to hurry down to the local church, temple, mosque, or synagogue. Rather, she helps readers understand, regardless of whether they believe in God or not, that the world's diverse religious texts share crucial values. They can transform us and enrich our lives, families, and communities.
