William Paden's classic exploration in religious studies, with a new introduction
In the current climate, Interpreting the Sacred provides a fresh, thorough way to consider and compare various religious belief systems. Paden puts forth the idea that our understanding of religion influences our understanding of ourselves and our world. Updated with a new introduction, this book is for anyone who wants to consider and discuss religious beliefs.
This book introduces readers to some common forms of interpretation, and "makes available to the general public an understanding of religion, and of how religion has come to be viewed by scholars, that is at the cutting edge of study in the academy but not as a part of public discourse."--John B. Cobb, Jr.
