The perfect companion to Huston Smith's The World's Religions — a classroom-tested workbook for the understanding of humankind's wisdom traditions.
This workbook offers cues to prompt your conversation with the textbook, and it gives you space to record the basic elements of that conversation. But every real conversation is unique, unfolding in ways that even the participants cannot anticipate. So don't let the workbook Emit your engagement with the subject. Keep a personal notebook to record the rest of your observations and reflections.
Another reason to keep a personal notebook is to help you cope with the special vocabulary of The World's Religions. Some readers find Smith's language rather different fromtheir own. Whenever Smith uses a word or phrase that is unfamiliar to you, look it up in your dictionary and then use it in your notebook entry. This practice will ensure that you understand the textbook fully, and that your own vocabulary continues to grow.
