Product Description

Introducing the key concepts, historical origins, and lasting political impact of the West's three main religions, Neusner and others offer keen insights into the integral conflicts between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. They examine both how they have defined the human context in the past and how they have influenced---and been affected by---the modern world. 600 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Publisher's Description

World Religions

Religious Foundations of Western Civilization introduces students to the major Western world religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—their beliefs, key concepts, history, as well as the fundamental role they have played, and continue to play, in Western culture.

Contributors include: Jacob Neusner, Alan J. Avery-Peck, Bruce D. Chilton, Th. Emil Homerin, Jon D. Levenson, William Scott Green, Seymour Feldman, Elliot R. Wolfson, James A. Brundage, Olivia Remie Constable, and Amila Buturovic.

"This book provides a superb source of information for scientists and scholars from all disciplines who are trying to understand religion in the context of human cultural evolution."

David Sloan Wilson, Professor, Departments of Biology and Anthropology, Binghamton University, Binghamton, New York 

 

This is the right book at the right time. Globalization, religious revivalism, and international politics have made it more important than ever to appreciate the significant contributions of the Children of Abraham to the formation and development of Western civilization.

John L. Esposito, University Professor and Founding Director of the Center for Muslm-Christian Understanding, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.

 

Jacob Neusner is Research Professor of Religion and Theology, and Senior Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Theology at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
