This book is the first in depth study on multifaith spaces, examining the new shape religion is taking in today's institutions. A `must read' for all engaged in planning, creating and running similar projects and all who want to get a understanding of one way in which religion is back in the public sphere with powerful symbols of peace and integration in diversity.
Terry Biddginton's superb examination of multifaith spaces will make a big contribution to inter-religious understanding. It offers an encyclopaedia of examples of the many ways in which people have wrestled with the dilemmas of creating multifaith spaces. Equally it provides a clear-sighted analysis of the underlying challenges and tensions which must be negotiated to enable the cohabitation of different faiths. It's a book whose relevance and usefulness will surely increase in the future.
