Religions of the World with Sacred World - With CD - 10th edition

Religions of the World with Sacred World - With CD (ISBN10: 0132240459; ISBN13: 9780132240451)
ISBN13: 978-0132240451
ISBN10: 0132240459

Summary: For introductory courses in world religions.

Conceived for students with little or no background in the academic study of religions, Religions of the World offers the most broad coverage of world religions supported by primary source documents, coverage of religions as they exist today, and integrated media resources.

In preparing the tenth edition of Religions of the World, Mark Woodward drew on his experience in teaching an introductory course on
the religions of the world to thousands of undergraduates over the last two decades, living and working in Buddhist and Muslim cultures for extended periods and on conversations with friends and colleagues in the Arizona Native American community. This book presumes no prior knowledge of any religious tradition. While it is impossible to cover all religions, it does cover those of the vast majority of people. In this edition, he has edited the text closely for clarity and readability and made other changes to keep it up to date and accurate including updating all sections on religion today for each tradition, bringing statistical data up to date, increasing coverage of religion and conflict of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and of the role of the Anabaptists in the Protestant Reformation.
