Help students understand the role of modern religions in today’s changing world
Living Religions provides a clear and straightforward account of the development, doctrines, and practices of the major faiths followed today. The emphasis throughout is on the personal consciousness of believers and their own accounts of their religion and its relevance in contemporary life. Authors Mary Pat Fisher and Robin Rinehart emphasize cultural customs, popular spiritual practices, and varieties of religious ways, as opposed to distinct monolithic institutionalized religions. The Tenth Edition includes new and revised content that helps students see how religion intersects with contemporary issues, including globalization, economics, and environmental and societal issues.

Living Religions, Tenth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.

From the Back Cover:


"Living Religions: A Brief Introduction" is a brief edition of "Living Religions, " fourth edition. It presents a stimulating survey of today's religious world. Exploring the historical developments and teachings of traditional faiths, indigenous religions, and new religious movements, this brief edition considers how each of these traditions has evolved into contemporary beliefs and practices. It examines the changing nature of each religion, the spread of religious pluralism, and the movement toward interfaith dialogue.

With the help of a team of specialist consultants in each faith, and drawing on a wealth of scholarly research and firsthand source material, Mary Pat Fisher gives a fresh and challenging insight into how believers of today's faiths perceive their religion and its role in the changing world in which they live. SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Quotes from contemporary teachers and practitioners of each faith.
  • Coverage of the role of women in each tradition.
  • Coverage of the socio-political context of contemporary religious practice.
  • Map and timeline providing the geographical and historical context for each religion.

About the Author:

Mary Pat Fisher writes about all religions, not only from academic research, but also from her experiences with religions around the world. Much of her knowledge comes from the unique interfaith community in India, Gobind Sadan, where she has lived since 1991. In addition to eight editions of Living Religions, she has written other textbooks about religions and also about art.

Robin Rinehart is the author of several books on Asian religions, as well as the new co-author of Living Religions. She currently serves as Dean of the Faculty and Professor of Religious Studies at Lafayette College, Pennsylvania.
