He Has Sold Over 100 Million Copies of Books and Now Best-Selling Author Ryuho Okawa Releases the Latest Edition of the Bestselling 'Laws' Series
"Laws of Faith" Addresses The Most Crucial Issues of Our Time
NEW YORK, May 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Since the immemorial, religion has played a central role in the shaping of human history, and faith has always been the anchor of the mind for individuals. However, the recent advancement of civilization has brought about a flood of information and a jumble of values, which led many people to lose sight of their faith. This trend seems to be further accelerated by the fact that traditional religions like Christianity and Islam have not been able to provide convincing answers to modern-day issues such as religious conflicts and terrorist attacks, arms race, nuclear war crisis, immigrants and refugees, social welfare, and political or economic chaos.
Today, many people are asking such questions as: “Does God really exist?” “If God exists, why does He not prevent war or eliminate poverty and suffering?” “Why do religions clash with one another?” “Why do people discriminate against others?”
To offer answers to these questions, renowned spiritual leader and best-selling author Ryuho Okawa and the founder of the Happy Science movements has published “The Laws of Faith: One World Beyond Differences” (2018, ISBN: 978-1942125-34-1). “Laws of Faith” is the latest in the Okawa’s annual “Laws” series. The book addresses the heart of current issues and offers solutions from the integrated perspective of rational and spiritual reasoning. Okawa shares the truth of a deep spiritual connection among different religions to cultivate a shared understanding which, he says, will lead to solving entailed issues caused by misunderstanding.
“These are the Words of God who create you,” writes Okawa. “These are the Words of God — the God of ancient Africa, the Middle East and India, and the God who appears in the Old Testament and the New Testament, and in the Koran. These are also the Words of the Supreme God Shangdi, the 5,000 years of Chinese history, the God who existed since pre-Kajiki times in Japanese Shinto, and the God known as Odin, the father of Mighty Thor and Loki in Northern Europe. This God is also the God of North and South America. The one and only Supreme God who stands above various ethnic gods and diverse gods — He is the highest God of the Earth who was once called ‘Alpha,’ once known as ‘Elohim,’ and is now known as ‘El Cantare.’”

When we turn the key to opening a new future based on shared faith, we can achieve harmony among individuals and nations.
