Introduction to Divine Multiplicity
Most “Westerners,” when the topic of religion comes up, will probably think first of the big three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. But these three religions do not by any means constitute the whole religious picture of the world. There are millions of people whose religious life is lived out in the thought and practice of revering multiple gods. In this section of the book we have included three papers that deal with religions that involve divine multiplicity. I also discuss a fourth paper on this topic which is included in the volume under the Process Theology section where it also belongs.
