I think the Fisher text's comprehensive coverage of the basics of each religion is commendable. Even if I don't teach every religion in the book (an impossible feat), I still direct students to those chapters as reference or further information.

Plenty of examples are sited. Primary sources, personal interviews, etc. are all very useful for the students understanding of course topics.
-Instructor Sarah McCombs, University of West Florida
I do like that the material is organized somewhat historically, splitting between the "east" and the "west." I do not need to skip up and down the various chapters, which I like.
-Instructor Dorcas Chung, Folsom Lake College
The text is teachable in the sense that whereas Fisher does not problematize the information, the instructor has plenty of in-roads to do so while teaching.
-Instructor Fotini Katsanos, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
For an introductory text, I find it to be very accurate and representative of a solid textbook. I have looked over MANY simliar texts in the same genre, yet I find myself coming back to Living Religions again and again.
-Jon Brammer, Three Rivers Community College
The fisher text is good in providing both past and present persepctives.
-Professor Leena Taneja, Stetson University
