9780072986198: Studying Religion: An Introduction Through Cases

Through the use of thought-provoking case studies, summaries, and review questions, this introductory level text shows students how to engage in the "academic" study of religion and helps instructors address some of the typical problems they encounter when introducing students to the study of religion. Kessler guides students through an unbiased and varied study of religious beliefs and practices such as sacred power, myths and rituals, religious art, the problem of evil, and the relationship between religion and morality. The text also addresses issues of gender and religious institutionalization.
