Religious Autobiographiesby Gary L. Comstock
Pub. Date: 08/28/1994
This anthology includes autobiographies of both men and women from diverse multicultural contexts. It presents religion as a ''lived experience,'' avoiding an overly theoretical approach. The main goal of the book is to help students acquire the ability to think with empathy about ''the other'' and critically about religion, and to do so while providing a multicultural and gender-balanced set of readings.
