Panel: Traits of God and Other Deities | Closer to Truth

Synopsis

How do the Islamic, Jewish, Hindu, and Christian traditions address the traits of God and other deities? What specific traits or attributes do deities possess? Is God a personal being? What is the relationship between God and time? A panel of distinguished philosophers of religion joins host Robert Lawrence Kuhn to discuss these questions and more.

This panel features Imran Aijaz (University of Michigan-Dearborn), Joshua Golding (Bellarmine University), Swami Medhananda (Ramakrishna Institute of Moral and Spiritual Education), and Ryan Mullins (Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies).

The Global Philosophy of Religion Project aims to make the philosophy of religion a truly global field by promoting the scholarly work of researchers from underrepresented regions and religious traditions. It is led by Professor Yujin Nagasawa and hosted by the University of Birmingham. This interview was conducted by Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of Closer To Truth.

This project was made possible in part through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
