Product Description

Neighboring Faiths, Second Edition is a comprehensive introduction to the world's major religions.World religions are embodied worldviews and practices lived out in the lives of our friends and colleagues. Encounters with these neighboring faiths often challenge our own beliefs and traditions. They make us think more deeply about our own faith commitments.

For all who want to understand the religious faiths of their neighbors and coworkers, Winfried Corduan offers this helpful introduction to the religions of the world. His survey covers major and minor religions including Judaism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, African traditional religion, Native American religion, Hinduism, Jainism, Baha'I, Chinese Popular religion, and Shinto, and Japanese religion.

Neighboring faiths emphasizes not just formal religious teachings but also how each religion is practiced in daily life. Dozens of photographs, charts, and maps help illustrate how the faiths are lived out in contemporary culture. Moving beyond mere description, Corduan offers specific suggestions on how Christians can avoid giving unnecessary offense to followers of these faiths while engaging them in constructive dialogue.

The second edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded, with a new chapter on Islam for a post-9/11 world as well as other additional material throughout.

For students seeking to understand what other religions believe and practices, and for small groups and churches who want to become more effective in reaching those from other cultures and religions Neighboring Faiths is an indispensible guide.
