Book Description:
From its introduction by Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu to the epilogue by the Dalai Lama, Geography of Religion encourages new understanding of the world's great religions and of their evolution from ancient roots to vital roles in modern life. With a text as fascinating as it is authoritative; vivid photographs that evoke the reverence, rituals, and rewards of each spiritual tradition; and a rich variety of essays, sidebars, and maps, this magnificent book charts the many paths that guide us to God.

Chapters on each of the 5 major religions Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam explore the landscapes and cultures where they took hold and flourished. Eminent scholars share the faiths they live and study, revealing their sacred scriptures and rites. Every page offers new insights into religious history and doctrine, along with stunning images of believers at prayer, the holy places they cherish, and their houses of worship from soaring cathedrals and magnificent mosques to humble shrines infused with a blessed simplicity.

Fittingly, each chapter closes with a photo essay on pilgrims and their devotional journeys a wonderful visual reminder that no matter which faith we may embrace, we are all fellow travelers in our search for the truth.

'The 200 photographs demonstrating the diversity of architecture, people, and terrain, are stunning in their beauty and simplicity.' Publishers Weekly
