What is Religion?
Until recently, religion was not about thinking things. It was, rather, about behaving in a way that changed participants at a profound level. Compassion and the Golden Rule were the primary religious categories and any form of violence ~ even unkind speech or impatient gestures ~ were fundamentally unreligious. Karen Armstrong explores the nature of the religious quest in all the major traditions, east and west, and examines the peripheral role of metaphysics and dogma, which has been a peculiar preoccupation of Western Christianity.
