Product Details


‘In a splendid exposition of non-Christian approaches to God, Eck encourages an increased religious literacy that she suggests will contribute richness and diversity to our national identity.’ –Publishers Weekly

“There cannot be a wiser or more authoritative guide to this challenging world of diverse spirituality than Diana Eck.”–Karen Armstrong, author of A History of God

“Eck has put the structure and content of her beliefs on the line while opening herself to encounter deep places of living, vibrant faith in other religious traditions. Her Christian faith commitment is apparent, as is her dedication to dialogue, and she has managed deftly to balance the two, presenting a nuanced discussion of the richness that can be gained from such authentic encounters both here and abroad.”

“Although Encountering God is the work of a scholar and is throughout informed by scholarship, its intended audience is anyone who has ever entertained spiritual and religious questions.”
-Boston Phoenix

“With this account of her life journey, Eck will be incorporated in the list of twentieth-century interpreters who have facilitated the conversations of men and women dedicated to the interior life.”

“This book is not simply a personal diary. It is also both an urgent call for interreligious dialogue and a theological argument for that pluralism underlying such dialogue.”
-Religious Studies Review
