9780199999590: World Religions Today

Revealing the significance of religion in contemporary life, World Religions Today, Fifth Edition, explores major religious traditions--Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, South Asian religions, East Asian religions, indigenous religions, and new religions--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 religions to their classical beliefs and practices and focuses on how these religions have both radically changed the modern world and been changed by it. The book is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids--text boxes, timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms, and suggestions for further reading--and more than 200 photographs. For a wealth of additional teaching and study resources, visit www.oup.com/us/esposito.

Religions of Asia Today, Third Edition: 978-0-19-999964-4

Religions of the West Today, Third Edition: 978-0-19-999963-7

Review:


"World Religions Today does an excellent job of helping students to place religion in the contemporary world."--Robert Brown, James Madison University


"This is a great textbook for introducing world religions, with a strong emphasis on a religion's contact with modernity and its continuing evolution in light of globalization."--David Kitts, Carson-Newman University


"The writing is clear and not bogged down with academic jargon, yet it is sophisticated and at a level that is appropriate for undergraduate study."--Robin L. Owens, Mount St. Mary's College
