Summary
"The authors of this book reveal a number of interesting linkages between Roman Catholicism and Twelver Shi'ism. They compare the histories of the two faiths, consider parallels between important figures in each, and high-light the doctrinal, structural, and sociopolitical similarities they share. The authors also discuss the importance of a holy family and divine law in both traditions." "The book helps explain the essence of both traditions while enriching our understanding of each. It wrestles with issues such as the relationship between God and humanity, the continuum between life and death, the tension between war and peace, the gaps between rich and poor, the significance of religious ceremony, the role of redemptive suffering, the relationship between religion and politics, and the role that religious systems such as Catholicism and Shi'ism can play in addressing the problems of a world in the midst of fundamental transformation."--Jacket
