In the letter to the Hebrews, we read 'At various times in the past and in various different ways, God spoke to our ancestors...' (Hebrews 1.1). 'At various times and in various ways', that is what this book is all about. Just how did God 'speak' to our ancestors? How did God make an abiding presence know in creation? It is an attempt to penetrate the varied manifestations of this Presence in the world and the religious sensitivities of humanity that help make us aware of this presence. This study revolves around the origins and ideas of the world's major living religions of the eastern half of the world. The different ways that eastern religions perceive the reality of the 'world of the sacred' is our focus.
