Description

Taking a fresh approach, World Religions Today explores world religious traditions as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. In contrast with most other books on world religions, this unique work does not adopt a historical perspective that focuses on the past; instead, it makes use of past beliefs and practices as backdrops for understanding how different faiths have evolved up to the present day.show more
