Revealing the significance of religion in contemporary life, World Religions Today, Fourth Edition, explores major religious traditions—Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, East Asian Religions, indigenous religions, and new religions—as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. This unique volume accomplishes two goals: it connects today's religions to their classical beliefs and practices and focuses on how these religions have responded to and been transformed by the modern world. The authors combine thorough coverage of the historical background of each religion with up-to-the-minute discussions of its current practices. The volume is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids—text boxes, timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms, and suggestions for further reading—and more than 200 photographs.
World Religions Today, Fourth Edition, is also available as two separate volumes:
Religions of Asia Today, Second Edition (978-0-19-975949-1)
Religions of the West Today, Second Edition (978-0-19-975950-7)
"Pedagogically, the text is superb. It is not only informative and accessible, but also extremely interesting. The emphasis on modernity, post-modernity, and inter- and intra-religious diversity is both crucial and appealing." —Mohammad Hassan Khalil, Michigan State University
