This introductory textbook describes and compares six religious traditions - Native American, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist - focusing on ways in which belief is played out in practice, experience, and community. Emphasis is placed on religion in the USA today, with attention to the historical developments each religion has undergone, especially in response to the religious pluralism of American culture.
