World Scripture: A Comparative Anthology of Sacred Texts - Sun Myung Moon

World Scripture 
World Scripture and the Teachings of Sun Myung Moon builds on the foundation of World Scripture:

A Comparative Anthology of Sacred Texts (1991)

That volume was a pioneering work in the annals of religious literature. Scriptures of the world’s religions were examined  systematically to illuminate their universal teachings and highlight their common ground.

The Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon commissioned World Scripture based upon the firm conviction that religions have a key role to play in building a world of lasting peace in the twenty-first century.

The present volume, the second in the World Scripture series, brings together sacred texts with selections from the Reverend Moon’s teachings. It is no exaggeration to say that his teachings thoroughly cover the multitude of topics espoused by the world’s religions. Often he affirms a particular religion’s doctrine and demonstrates its application in the contemporary world. Occasionally he takes issue with a doctrine and offers a different explanation. And not infrequently, he takes a traditional religious concept and raises it to a higher dimension.

For the many people who have come to know and respect Rev. Moon for his interreligious work and his efforts for world peace, these pages offer a doorway into his thought. For those who are already well acquainted with Rev. Moon’s teachings, these pages reveal the rich connections between his thought and the heritage of the world’s religions.
