Compassion in the World's Religions

Envisioning Human Solidarity

Edited by: Anindita Balslev, Dirk Evers

In this volume religious scholars from different religions as well as political leaders explore the notion of compassion in their respective tradition and its relevance for today. The whole endeavour is underpinned by the conviction that compassion is not just a fleeting sentiment but a shared value of utmost importance. The contributions are the fruit of two conferences held in the run-up to the 2009 Parliament of the World's Religions.
