Summary
Now in its third edition, 'A concise introduction to world religions' is a comprehensive introduction to major faith traditions around the globe. Building on the foundations provided by the two-volume set 'World religions: Eastern traditions; and 'World religions: Western traditions', this volume offers an overview of each tradition's history, practices, and place within the contemporary society. Highlights: A new introductory chapter gives an up-to-date overview of the study of religion around the globe; Three new contributions offer chapters on Indigenous, Jewish, and Christian traditions; Increased coverage of women's roles and contributions brings to light often overlooked aspects of religious life; Fully revised sections on contemporary issues address the challenges that religious traditions face in the modern world -- Publisher
