Overview

Taking a fresh approach, World Religions Today explores world religious traditions as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. In contrast with most other books on world religions, this unique work does not adopt a historical perspective that focuses on the past; instead, it makes use of past beliefs and practices as backdrops for understanding how different faiths have evolved up to the present day.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

    Book fine, service horrible.

    Renting from B&N is a nightmare.
    Six telephone calls, three-plus hours on hold, late charges, an e-mail confirming that the book had been received and late charges reversed. A new e-mail saying they don't have the book, more late charges and telephone calls. "Customer service" (I use the term loosely) saying they can't confirm that a confirmation of receipt was sent. Plus they refused my offer to forward the confirmation of receipt e-mail back to them. I give up. I'm paying for the book because I can't keep doing this. It just isn't worth my time and energy any more. Will never, never, never rent from B&N again.
