Description

In today's world, where religious divides and cultural differences so often have tragic consequences, a sound understanding of the belief systems and practices of other peoples and cultures is essential. The four books in the World Faiths series: Christianity; Hinduism and Other Eastern Religions; Islam and Judaism, offer a simple and child-friendly introduction to religion around the world. The history and origins of each religion are explained, along with information about their calendar and festivals; places of worship; religious practices and their place in modern society. Religious artwork from through the ages demonstrates how each religion has been practised, and has evolved, throughout history, while dynamic photographs show how modern worship is celebrated today. Solid facts, and text from an expert author, make World Faiths an invaluable resource for religious education.show more

Extensive glossaries and indexes offer help for quick-reference. VOYA Here is a colorful, non-intimidating series that manages to pluck out some of the more interesting aspects of four of the world's great religions. These inexpensive paperback books have the lavish pictorial interest of coffee-table books. This series is particularly well suited for middle school collections where there is a call for comparing religious traditions, but it could be used in high school and public libraries as well. KLIATT Briefly, and with beautifully produced full-color illustrations, these books summarize the essential facts about the world's major religions.show more
