Inspiring Progress


By Gary T. Gardner. The absence of strong spiritual and ethical dimensions in twentieth-century development helped to produce one of the most violent, environmentally impoverished, and economically unequal centuries in human history. Inspiring Progress identifies the value that religions add to the debate about societal advancement, and it encourages the world’s religious traditions to step up their involvement in shaping the development path of the human family in the twenty-first century. (W. W. Norton & Company, 2006).
