Ideal for courses in Asian/Eastern religions, Religions of Asia Today, Second Edition, covers the same material contained in the authors' longer textbook, World Religions Today, Fourth Edition, while also featuring a unique chapter on Islam in Asia.

Religions of Asia Today, Second Edition, reveals the significance of religion in contemporary life. Hinduism, Buddhism, East Asian Religions, Islam in Asia, indigenous religions, and new religions are explored as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. This unique volume accomplishes two goals: it connects today's Asian religions to their classical beliefs and practices and focuses on how these religions have responded to and been transformed by the modern world. The authors combine thorough coverage of the historical background of each religion with up-to-the-minute discussions of its current practices. This volume is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids--text boxes, timelines, maps, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms, and suggestions for further reading--and more than 100 photographs and illustrations.
