Why are spiritual tolerance and pluralism so tough to accomplish? Why is the customarily violent fundamentalist backlash opposed to them so effective? Robert Erlewine appears to a brand new faith of explanation for solutions to those questions. Drawing on Enlightenment writers Moses Mendelssohn, Immanuel Kant, and Hermann Cohen, who positioned Christianity and Judaism in pressure with tolerance and pluralism, Erlewine reveals how to holiday the deadlock, melt hostilities, and identify equivalent relationships with the opposite. Erlewine’s restoration of a faith of cause stands against this either to secularist critics of faith who reject faith for the sake of cause and to modern non secular conservatives who eschew reason behind the sake of faith. Monotheism and Tolerance indicates the way to take care of the intractable challenge of religiously prompted and justified violence.
