Book Description:
Revealing the significance of religion in contemporary life, World Religions Today, Third Edition, explores eight major religious traditions Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, East Asian Religions, indigenous religions, and new religions as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. This unique volume accomplishes two goals; it connects today's religions to their classical beliefs and practices while also focusing on how these religions have responded to and been transformed by the modern world. The authors combine thorough coverage of the historical background of each religion with up to the minute discussions of its current practices. Each discussion opens with a contemporary scenario of religious experience that illustrates the tension between premodern views and modernity. The volume is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms and more than 200 photographs. An Instructor's Manual and a Companion Website featuring resources for both students and instructors supplement the text.
