Summary
"In The Shared Well, Robert Van de Weyer identifies the ancient dangers of dogma, arrogance, and inflexible convictions common to all faiths and nations as among the primary causes of this unnecessary religious and political strife. He also cites chronic world poverty caused by unregulated global markets and insatiable materialism. Hopeful about the future, Van de Weyer describes many ways in which the more than three billion people of the Islamic and Western worlds can unite to build a more prosperous and harmonious global community. With clear and profound insights into history, religion and economics, The Shared Well is an ideal primer for any reader eager to comprehend the past and build a better future."--Jacket
