Examines religious practices from an anthropological perspective

Religions in Practice, 6/e, offers an issues-oriented perspective on everyday religious behaviors – prayer, sacrifice, initiation, healing, etc. – by focusing on such topics as transnationalism, gender, and religious laws. The text examines a full spectrum of religions, from small-scale societies to major, established religions. The in-depth treatment of Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity is particularly noteworthy and easily supplemented with field projects directly related to the text.

MySearchLab is a part of the Bowen program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore religion in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
