Hello,

In my big project due in for tomorrow I have a long quote from Joseph Ratzinger's "Truth And Tolerance: Christian Belief And World Religions" that I can't find anywhere.

Is there anybody who has this book in English and could help me with this fragment? In the Polish edition it is on page 23 and starts with the author writing about (translation mine) "immense pluralism and illusory task of searching for the truth". Unfortunately, I can't give you the exact location - I only know that the quotation is about 3 paragraphs long; the 2nd one is about "the possibility of Asian religions co-existing within one another, i.e. that someone can be both a Buddhist and Confucianist or a Buddhist and Shintoist", and the 3rd paragraph ends with a remark on "shapeless mystical experience retranslated into changing and varied language of forms without their own, additional meaning".

I'll appreciate any help, because it's very important for me.

Piotr

here it is... Feb 17, 2009

I believe I found the part that you are looking for, just by chance it turned up in the reading sample...

hope this helps,

Evi

PS let me know if it is not the right link (if you get the front page of the book when you click on the link, then enter "mystical experience" and "search this book" and then click on page 26

Questia Feb 17, 2009

... claims to be "the world's largest online library of books, with over 72,000 full-text books, 2 million articles, and an entire reference set complete with a dictionary, encyclopedia, and thesaurus."

Google Book Search has 7 million books, give or take a few hundred thousand, Microsoft's now abandoned project also made one million available... need I say more? It's just embarrassing for whoever is behind Questia. Still, not a bad resource.
