Pocket Guide to World Religions by Dr Winfried Corduan

Book Description

Have you ever wondered . . . what the red dot on an Indian woman's forehead means? whether all Buddhist monks practice martial arts? if the Emperor of Japan is still considered a god? Here is a concise, informative guide for anyone looking for answers to basic questions about the world's varied religions. In short, incisive chapters, Winfried Corduan introduces readers to twelve of the world's major religions, including Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Parsi, Shinto and Sikhism. For each, he offers brief descriptions of its name, numbers and distribution, key symbols, history, Scriptures, major beliefs, subgroups, worship practices, home practices, clothing, diet and calendar. Also included are even briefer descriptions of sixteen new religious movements and traditional or tribal religions. This book is for students, pastors and other busy people who want the quick, bare-facts scoop on current religions.

In the Beginning God by Dr Winfried Corduan In the Beginning God, Paperback / softback (September 2013)

This study about the origin of religion concludes that evidence for monotheism (the belief in one true God who created the world and holds people morally accountable) outweighs the popular view of animism (religion born from the veneration of spirits)."

Neighboring Faiths by Dr Winfried Corduan Neighboring Faiths, Hardback (October 2012)

Winfried Corduan describes the beliefs and real-life practices of the world's religions, including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Native American religions and Baha'i. This edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded, with a new chapter on Islam after 9/11 and additional material throughout.
