Publisher's Description

This book provides readers with the tools and resources for exploring the many dimensions of religion as a central reality of human life. It provides a functional definition of religion that suggests that religion is important to everyone because each person's life is shaped by, and all persons are concerned about, occasions in their lives that threaten or promote fulfillment of the individual's basic values and commitments. Chapter coverage includes the six major world religions as they relate to: traditions, artistic expression, ways of conceiving the divine, the problem of evil, understanding the self, sin and guilt, death and the self, salvation and redemption, interpersonal relations, corporate expressions of ethical concerns, social stability and social change, human response to the natural process, and order and origins. For anyone interested in the formal study of religion.

Editorial Reviews


"Very comprehensive in terms of topics covered." — Anne Wetherilt, Emmanuel College




"I find the selections introducing the world's religions very helpful and one of the strongest parts of the book .... I find it very helpful to have this stretched all through the texts and it offers a way to teach this class that allows it to be an interesting introduction." — Jeffrey C. Pugh, Elon University
