Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the teachings of the world's religions — the history, beliefs and practices of different faiths. Here is a revealing and enlightening new guide to the religions of the world. Superb color photographs give the reader an "eyewitness" insight into the beliefs of different religions and into the lives of their founders and followers. See a Passover meal, a lama's headdress, the Wheel of Existence, a picture of Christ's Crucifixion, a Buddhist monk and a shaman's mask. Learn why Buddhists meditate, who Mahavira was, what the five pillars of Islam are, what the Tao is, why Sikhs wear turbans and what Confucius taught. Discover the meaning of the Yin-Yang symbol, why Zoroastrians worship in fire temples, the role of ancestors in primal religions, why Christians celebrate Holy Communion, what a Bar Mitzvah is and why the god Ganesh has the head of an elephant, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

From the relationship between gods and nature in ancient Greece to the goddess festivals in India to the emergence of the Christian community in America, this stunning book offers a wonderful overview of the world's major religions. Full color.
