Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic work presents the religions of the world in a way that captures the total human experience in both a factual and empathetic manner. Contains chapters on understanding the world's religious heritage; the cosmic religions of prehistoric and tribal peoples; the spiritual paths of India; Buddhism and other religions of East Asia; Monotheistic religions; Judaism; the growth of Christianity; the Islamic faith, and more, and concludes with a chapter that considers religion today and in the future. Describes the experience of each faith's practitioners in the United States and summarizes the affect of that faith on larger American culture. Offers fresh insights and information on today's new religious movements (such as China's Falun Gong)--discussing the social conditions that tend to give rise to such movements, their sociological nature, and what they say about the societies in which they appear--and includes current information on women's role in religion, and the impact of religion on such human crises as ecology and population. Comes with handy outlines for writing a research paper on world religions and visiting religious sites. For general readers interested in an introspective and enlightening overview of world religions today.
