Overview


Created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process with over 500 students and faculty, RELG: WORLD is an engaging and accessible solution to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of today's learners at a value-based price. Brief, clear, inexpensive, and intensely visual, RELG: WORLD is the first 4LTR Press text in this market. The price and visually engaging 4LTR Press treatment will attract students (without repelling instructors), and the tear-out Chapter in Review cards will encourage retention. If instructors wish to cover further primary sources , they have the option of creating a custom edition incorporating selections from Van Voorst's best-selling ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES. The eBook will also include numerous annotated links to interactive maps, videos, audio pronunciations, Google Earth explorations, and primary sources. Professors are always looking for ways to make religions practiced in distant places and times "come alive" for their students. RELG: WORLD's framing of different religions as encounters between the religions' adherents and individuals like their students resonates with their needs. In both content and design, RELG: WORLD aims to meet course challenges of lower cost, brevity, and relevance to students.

It is a little to elementary in it's approach to the topic. Still a good read though.
