Description

A simple, beautifully illustrated guide to the major world religions. Across the world, people follow many different beliefs, with Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism being perhaps the five best known. But what do their followers actually believe? In this clear, concise and accessible survey of world religions, the different beliefs and practices are set out. We learn where each faith originates, who founded it (if appropriate), and what are its holy writings. Answers common questions, such as, Why do Muslims pray five times a day? Why won't Jews eat pork? What is the meaning of the cross for Christians? What do these faiths have in common, and what marks each out as unique?show more
