Publisher Comments:

Created by the continuous feedback of a "student-tested, faculty-approved" process, RELG: WORLD, Second Edition, delivers a visually appealing and succinct print component, tear-out review cards, and a consistent online offering with CourseMate that includes an eBook and a set of interactive digital tools--all at a value-based price. This book frames different religions as encounters between the religions' adherents and individuals who are much like readers, making the subject come alive. The eBook includes numerous annotated links to videos, audio, Google Earth™ explorations, and primary sources.
