From the Publisher:
World Religions in Practice introduces five of the world’s great religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – and explores how they are lived and expressed in custom, ritual, and symbol.

  • A major new textbook exploring the world’s great religions through their customs, rituals and everyday practices – by focusing on this ‘lived experience’ it goes beyond many traditional introductions to religious studies
  • Adopts a directly comparative approach to develop a greater understanding of the nature of religion
  • Each chapter engages with an individual theme, such as birth, death, food, pilgrimage and ethics, to illustrate how religious practices are expressed
  • Broadens students’ understanding by offering an impartial discussion of the similarities and differences between each religion
  • Includes chapter-by-chapter opening themes and summaries, and will be accompanied by a website at featuring additional resources and study questions.
