Description - World Religions: The Great Faiths Explored and Explained by John Bowker
An essential guide to religion that explores and explains the history and key teachings of the world's main religions - Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism - alongside ancient and little-known beliefs
Learn everything you need to know about the central practices, important figures, and key teachings of many different religions.
Each of the major faiths - including Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Islam - is examined in detail through its sacred texts, epic imagery, key beliefs and religious artefacts. Entries also explore other faiths from Zoroastrianism - the oldest "living" religion - to the alternative beliefs of the modern era - all of which are set into the context of the political, social, and cultural climates from which they emerged.
Compelling and accessible, World Religions is the perfect guide for students of religious study, or anyone interested in the ideas of ancient and present day faiths and religious philosophies.
