Through the lens of a Christian minister, immersed in the global interfaith movement and trained in the discipline of religious philosophy, this book develops a social ethic that is based on function. By using the concept of a functional paradigm, the book explores the way religious language works to create subjective mental states. These mental states represent various degrees of truth for the adherents, but due to their subjective nature, the truths cannot be objectively verified. This results in conflicting truth claims by religious adherents from different religious traditions. However, because the truth claims function in the various traditions to teach social values, function and morality are areas in which common ground can be found and explored.
