This site is designed for deep thinking about eternal issues.

We offer insight into the role of religion in today’s world. If you seek deeper analysis of the concept of martyrdom, the realities of religious pluralism on the global stage, the intersection of ethics and faith, concepts of the state in Islam, contemporary atheism, life in the presence of God, the figure of Abraham across religions, ongoing events in the Middle East and North Africa, and many more issues that cry out for greater clarity today, then this is the site for you.

We also invite you to partake in The Study of Religions Across Civilizations (SORAC). What in the world is SORAC? Come and see! You can connect to the SORAC website here.

We also invite you to view our video course on theo-humanism. What in the world is theo-humanism? Come and see! You can connect to the theo-humanism page and course at the link above.
