Description


Featuring a unique, consistent, and modular chapter structure--Teachings, History, and Way of Life--and numerous pedagogical features, Invitation to World Religions invites students to explore the world's great religions with respect and a sense of wonder. This chapter structure enables
students to navigate each religion in a consistent and systematic way and helps students to make comparisons between religions. The book describes the essential features of each religion and shows how they have responded to basic human needs and to the cultural contexts in which they developed. The
authors also encourage students to develop an appreciation for what religious beliefs and practices actually mean to their adherents.
