For example, Ghafory-Ashtiany's, study on Abrahamic religions (i.e., Islam, Christianity, and Judaism) demonstrated that a religious understanding of disaster and some key religious concepts from the Holy Quran can both create a religious incentive among believers to take disaster Cited by: 2.

    In both Christianity and Buddhism we can see the process of gradual codification / dogmatization of symbols and principles, this is normal. Both religions have layers, and if you explore the populations of practicing representatives of both religions, you will always find a gamut of sophistication, from the most superficial to the most profound. Buddhism and Christianity are two great religions in the world that made a lot of contributions to the development of human beings in all aspects of two religions may be worlds apart doctrinally and institutionally, but in their works for the betterment of human beings and the society, they are like wings that work together for the advancement and progress of sm.

[Kirk R MacGregor] -- Considers the effects on the religious and philosophical establishments, of disasters (natural and man-made) and compares the reactions of European Christianity to the Black Death (16th century CE).

Christianity and social work has a long and complicated history. From the early development of social work in the West, it was clear that many (though not all) social work practitioners were called to become social workers because of their faith, and many of those early social workers were Christians from a variety of Christian denominations.

Terms such as essence and energy are associated with the theology and spirituality of the fourteenth-century Byzantine thinker Gregory Palamas. One purpose of this book is to show how Palamas’ theology is in accordance with Greek patristic thinking, with its background in a.

It is nearly impossible for someone to understand a religious tradition from either inside or outside the religious tradition. For this reason, a comparative approach is necessary. Noticing similarities and differences between religions helps both the insider and the outsider understand religion better.

A scholarly journal devoted to Buddhism and Christianity and their historical and contemporary interrelationships, Buddhist-Christian Studies presents thoughtful articles, conference reports, and book reviews.

It also includes sections on comparative methodology and historical comparisons. Without Buddha I Could Not Be a Christian narrates how esteemed theologian, Paul F. Knitter overcame a crisis of faith by looking to Buddhism for inspiration.
