Description

World religions and religious diversity are increasingly being taught in schools. This trend reflects the changing religious landscape of the United States with significant new immigrant groups who worship outside the dominant Judeo-Christian traditions. The purpose of the six-book set, Introduction to the World's Major Religion, is to provide high school students on up and general readers with a clear, objective, detailed overview on the religion's history of foundation, text and major tenets, branches, practice worldwide, rituals and holidays, and major figures. The set fills a niche between the available sophisticated adult offerings and those for a middle school audience and offers up-to-date information and perspectives. Little knowledge of the religion and only an intellectual interest in the subject are assumed.
