World Religions : A Guide To The Essentials – Third Edition


This masterful survey of world religions presents a clear and concise portrait of the history, beliefs, and practices of Eastern and Western religions. The authors, both respected scholars of world religions, have over 50 years of combined teaching experience. Their book is accessibly written for introductory classes, can be easily adapted for one- or two-semester courses, and employs a neutral approach for broad classroom use.

The third edition has been revised throughout; contains updated entries on the history and contemporary configurations of each tradition, addressing such issues as gender and sexuality; and adds a concluding chapter on newer, or minor, religious traditions and major subgroups. The book includes effective sidebars, pronunciation guides, photographs, timelines, charts, calendars, and glossaries.

Online resources through Baker Academic’s Textbook eSources include Powerpoint/Keynote slides, new maps and videos, and a large question bank of multiple-choice test questions (available to professors upon request).
