Praised in pre-publication reviews for its clarity, caliber of scholarship, and coverage of traditions not found in other texts, COMPARING RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS is an innovative set of three texts which compare parts of one tradition with another. Focusing on topics that are familiar human issues to all?family, work, and virtue?the texts help students to understand the commonalities and differences of the traditions.
