Product Description

Revealing the significance of religion in contemporary life, World Religions Today explores major religious traditions - Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, East Asian Religions, indigenous religions, and new religions - as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies.

This unique volume accomplishes two goals: it connects today's religions to their classical beliefs and practices and focuses on how these religions have responded to and been transformed by the modern world. The authors combine thorough coverage of the historical background of each religion with discussions of its current practices. The volume is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids such as text boxes, timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms, and suggestions for further reading.

NEW TO THIS EDITION:
  • Updates throughout that cover more aspects of the current international situation and developments in religious life around the world
  • "Rituals and Rites" boxes examining rituals that have changed in practice or meaning over time
  • "Gender Focus" boxes that highlight gender-specific customs within each faith
  • An updated Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/esposito featuring all of the material from the Instructor's Manual and additional resources for students
World Religions Today, Fourth Edition, is also available as two separate volumes:

Religions of Asia Today, Second Edition: CBD Stock#759491 (ISBN 978-0-19-975949-1)

Religions of the West Today, Second Edition: CBD Stock#759500 (ISBN 978-0-19-975950-7)

Endorsements

Pedagogically, the text is superb. It is not only informative and accessible, but also extremely interesting. The emphasis on modernity, post-modernity, and inter- and intra-religious diversity is both crucial and appealing.
