Description

Understanding the Religions of the World (PDF) provides a new approach to the study of religion which moves away from the purely descriptive and instead assists students understand how religions actually ‘work’. Including all the main faith traditions; it merges historical context; contemporary beliefs and practices; and original theory; with several study features and valuable overviews.

  • A major new student-focused textbook focusing on contemporary practices and beliefs of world religions
  • Combines original theory by arguing that each religion operates according to its own order and logic and that they fulfill our requirement for a point of orientation
  • Brings together a group of experts to provide uniquely comprehensive coverage of religious traditions; including the religions of Oceania and African religions; which are hardly covered in detail
