Beliefs That Changed the World by John Bowker

Does the Quran demand Jihad? What has the synagogue meant for the survival of the Jewish people? Where can we find Nirvana? And how are religious convictions fuelling today's conflicts in the Middle East? Beliefs that Changed the World answers these and other fundamental questions in this compelling introduction to the great religions.

From the Jewish exodus over 3,000 years ago to the importance of Shinto in modern Japan, the histories of the world's prominent religions are brought to light, and the central tenets behind each are revealed. This is not only an enlightening exploration of how faiths have evolved throughout history, but a timely reflection on the way religious beliefs continue to shape our world. The religions covered include Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism and Shinto.
