Hinduism for Our Times by Arvind Sharma
Book DescriptionNo religion ever remains static: it affects and is in turn affected by material reality. In this book, Sharma examines the contours of this creative tension in contemporary Hinduism. Sharma attempts to raise self-awareness of this dimension of Hinduism to an unprecedented level. In this way, he hopes, that in the context of modernization and globalization, Hindus will be able to make conscious choices that will keep their religion at the cutting edge of the contemporary world instead of the periphery.
