Eight scholars speak with one voice in this engaging yet comprehensive presentation of the seven main traditions in world religion. Organized in ten chapters, this text is an ideal choice for courses in length from one quarter to one semester. Each chapter follows this organization: history, beliefs, practices, contemporary perspectives, and source readings. Supporting end-of -chapter material helps to frame the material and encourage further inquiry. Expertly written and constructed, this text offers unparalleled flexibility for instructors.
