In the Face of the Absolute

Full Product Description

In this revised edition of his classic work, perennialist author Frithjof Schuon addresses diverse aspects of the religious phenomenon with his characteristic authority. In the book's first section, Schuon provides striking insights into age-old religious and philosophical controversies such as the problem of evil, predestination and free will, and the meaning of eternity in the realms of heaven and hell. In the second section, Schuon masterfully harmonizes the divergent theological claims of the three main branches of Christianity-Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Protestantism-in the light of universal metaphysical truth. The final section contains several chapters relating to Islamic esoterism and concludes with a remarkable chapter on the spiritual substance of the Prophet of Islam. This new edition of In the Face of the Absolute features a fully revised translation from the French original and contains previously unpublished selections from Schuon's letters and other private writings. Also included are extensive editor's notes, a helpful glossary of foreign terms, and an index.

In the Face of the Absolute by Frithjof Schuon was published by World Wisdom Books in November 2014. The ISBN for In the Face of the Absolute is 9781936597413.
