About the Author:


The late Willard G. Oxtoby, the original editor of this work, was Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, where he launched the graduate program in the study of religion.

Roy C. Amore is Professor and an Associate Dean in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Windsor in Ontario.

Amir Hussain is Professor in the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University.

The late Alan F. Segal was Professor of Religion and Ingeborg Rennert Professor of Jewish studies at Barnard College, Columbia University.

Review:

"The main strength is tied to its purpose: concision. Major facets of each tradition are skillfully presented in a concise manner. The diversity of authors/voices, each specialists in the traditions on which they write, is a strength."
--Andre Maintenay, University of Toronto
