Berdialog Dengan Gereja: Sebuah Travelog KedamaianBerdialog Dengan Gereja: Sebuah Travelog Kedamaian by Mujahid Yusof Rawa

"Saya berpendirian dialog antra agama bukanla bererti bertolak ansur dalam isu-isu melibatkan akidah. Hakikatnya ia lebih kepada membina keharmonian di antara penganut-penganut agama yang pelbagai agar tidak mudah terjebak dengan api permusuhan di dalam menangani isu-isu panas. Bukan menjadi rahsia bahawa ada pihak yang untung jika berlaku ketegangan di antara agama. Pihak sebenginilah yang tidak habis-habis meniup api membakar agar ia sentiasa marak di Negara ini. Justeru, kehadiran buku ini sebenarnya tepat pada masanya. Ia merupakan catatan ringkas Dr Mujahid semasa pengalaman beliau menangani isu-isu panas yang menggugat kedamaian antara agama di negara ini. Pengalaman beliau yang juga merupakan Ahli Parlimen Parit Buntar dikumpulkan dalam buku ini bagi pembaca pelbagai kaum mengikut inisiatif dialog di atas nama Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS)" Tuan Guru Nik Abudul Aziz Nik Mat Al-Mursyidul Am Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS)

Engaging Christianity: A Travelogue Of PeaceEngaging Christianity: A Travelogue Of Peace by Mujahid Yusof Rawa

"I am of the belief that interfaith dialogue does not require the compromise of Aqidah. It is in effect about building harmony between different religions, so that they will not fall into enmity when difficulties arise. It is no secret that there are certain parties who seek to benefit from tension between religions. They are relentless in fostering further acrimony and unit. This book is therefore very timely. It is Dr. Mujahid's recollections of his experience in dealing with very sensitive issues that was threatening peace between our country's many religious communities. His experience as MP for Parit Buntar is compiled here to be shared with people of all races, as an initiative of dialogue under the banner of PAS." -Tuan Guru Dato' Bentara Setia Nik Abdul Azis Nik Mat Mursidul Am PAS

Buddhism Across Asia: Networks Of Material, Intellectual And Cultural Exchange, Volume 1Buddhism Across Asia: Networks Of Material, Intellectual And Cultural Exchange, Volume 1 by Sen, Tansen (Ed.)

"Buddhism across Asia is a must-read for anyone interested in the history and spread of Buddhism in Asia. It comprises a rich collection of articles written by leading experts in their fields. Together, the contributions provide an in-depth analysis of Buddhist history and transmission in Asia over a period of more than 2000 years. Aspects examined include material culture, politics, economy, languages and texts, religious institutions, practices and rituals, conceptualisations, and philosophy, while the geographic scope of the studies extends from India to Southeast Asia and East Asia. Readers' knowledge of Buddhism is constantly challenged by the studies presented, incorporating new materials and interpretations. Rejecting the concept of a reified monolithic and timeless 'Buddhism', this publication reflects the entangled 'dynamic and multi-dimensional' history of Buddhism in Asia over extended periods of 'integration,' 'development of multiple centres,' and 'European expansion,' which shaped the religion's regional and trans-regional identities." -- Max Deeg, Cardiff University
