About this title:
Synopsis:
UNDERSTANDING RELIGION IN GLOBAL SOCIETY is an accessible and timely introduction to religion that encourages students to explore actively the breadth and depth of the religious within the context of the current geo-political outlook. Using the phenomenological method, major religious traditions are analyzed in light of the opportunities and challenges posed by the forces of globalization. Organized topically, this textbook fosters deeper levels of understanding via engaging commentary and pedagogy and a robust website. Above all, this text assists students in questioning, exploring, and analyzing diverse religious contexts and in comparing the beliefs, rituals, texts, art, and individual and social aspects of religion.
