I had always included a non-religious point of view in my lessons, but only ever as “an alternative”, never as the focus of study. The gospel was concerned about man�s hopes, fears, decisions and commitments in the present, not about miraculous occurrences in the past.31 For Bultmann, �demythologizing� is accomplished by existential re-interpretation.

[149] From the time of this initial upheaval of the Islamic scientific tradition to the present day, Muslim scientists and scholars have developed a spectrum of viewpoints on the place of scientific learning within the context of Islam, none of which are universally accepted or practiced. [153] However, most maintain the view that the acquisition of knowledge and scientific pursuit in general is not in disaccord with Islamic thought and religious belief.

Phenomenology is "arguably the most influential approach to the study of religion in the twentieth century." (Partridge) The term is first found in the title of the work of the influential philosopher of German Idealism, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, entitled The Phenomenology of Spirit. This is the only place where we can find and make our paradise, not in some imaginary world on the other side of the grave. These are among the key findings of a new study of the global religious landscape conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life as part of the Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project, which analyzes religious change and its impact on societies around the world.
