9780023884719: A History of the World's Religions

Refined by over forty years of dialogue and correspondence with religious experts and practitioners around the world, this text is widely regarded as the hallmark of fairness and accuracy in its field. It is also the most thorough, yet concise history of world religions available in a single volume, treating many subjects largely neglected in other texts. The book's depth, breadth, and organization free instructors from having to "cover" everything in lectures, enabling them to select specific assignments and use class time for questions, discussion, and their own favorite materials.

About the Author:

David S. Noss taught in the Religion and Philosophy Department of Heidelberg College from 1950 until his retirement in 1989, although he continued teaching students and advising faculty until his passing in 2010. Dr. Noss studied at Franklin and Marshall College, the Pacific School of Religion, Lancaster Theological Seminary and the University of Chicago Divinity School, where he earned a Ph.D. in Religion and the Arts in 1952.

 

Blake Grangaard earned his B.A. from St. Olaf College, M.Div. from Luther Theological Seminary and Ph.D. from Union Theological Seminary in Virginia. He was a church pastor for almost 10 years before turning to academia. Dr. Noss has taught at Heidelberg College since 1996 and teaches most of the Religion classes, as well as an Honors seminar on Religion and Literature and an interdisciplinary core general education class on Religion and Politics.
