Description:

For courses in Religions of the World, History of Religions, Comparative Religion, and Introduction to Religious Studies in departments of Religion, Religious Studies, Theology, and Philosophy. Unique in approach, this text combines an historical-descriptive presentation of individual religions with a comparative-thematic approach. It begins with a discussion of the basic human questions and concerns relating to religione.g., origin and identity, ultimate reality, human nature, and the good lifeand then uses these essential concepts to help describe the beliefs, practices, and historical development of each religion. As the work of a single scholarmuch of it based on original researchthis book offers a consistency and depth missing in many of the texts in this field.
