About The Book
Since recorded human history (and perhaps even before), different religions have been the primary sources of knowledge in humanity’s quest to find meaning and purpose. Every religion also helps create a strong connection between people’s past, present and future. However, despite the strong similarity among religions, why is it that only the ‘dividing lines’ remain in focus?
Bridges across Humanity documents the amazing commonalities that are seen across all major religions. Even though many of these religions originated from ancient civilizations that had no knowledge of other civilizations, it is astounding that all of them explored common existential questions and emerged with a similar understanding, including the concept of God.
While the essential message from every religion is the same, the bloody divisions along religious lines continue to plague humanity. This book is a strong and urgent reminder to obliterate our ‘exclusive’ mindset and rid ourselves of the ignorance or misinformation that forces us to see religions as dividing lines. If history has taught us anything, we should view different religions as threads that bind us all in the pursuit of personal fulfilment and universal harmony.
