Overview

Discover the historical importance of religion in the world's cultures

Closely edited for clarity and readability, and conceived for students with little or no background in the academic study of religions, Religions of the World offers the most up-to-date and historically accurate coverage of the world’s major religions. It not only explains to students why it is imperative to study religions, but does this through the support of primary source documents, coverage of religions as they exist today, and integrated media resources.

In preparing the twelfth edition of Religions of the World, Mark Woodward drew on his introductory teaching experience – to thousands of undergraduates over the last decade – and his living / working experiences in Asian Christian, Buddhist, Confucian and Muslim societies for extended periods. He continues to stress the importance of religion in the world’s cultures, and the need to promote harmony and understanding among people of different faiths.
