About the Author:

Robert Ellwood is Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Religion at the University of Southern Illinois.  Born in Normal, Illinois, he received his B.A. from the University of Colorado, an M.Div. from Yale Divinity School, and a Ph.D. in History of Religion from the University of Chicago Divinity School, at which he was named Alumnus of the Year in 2009.  He taught Eastern religions at U.S.C. 1967-1997, was a Fulbright research professor in New Zealand in 1988, and Goodwin-Philpott Eminent Scholar in Religion at Auburn University, Alabama, 1998-99.  His research has focused on Japanese religion, new religious movements in the U.S. and elsewhere, mythology, and recent American religious history.  His numerous publications include Religious and Spiritual Groups in Modern America, Mysticism and Religion, The Sixties Spiritual Awakening, The Politics of Myth, and Tales of Darkness: The Mythology of Evil, among other works.   He now lives in Ojai, California.  

Review:

 "I think that the authors have done a good job of approaching the dynamics of the varied religions with an appropriate balance of coverage."  - Theresa Gilbertson, USF Sarasota-Manatee

 

"The author’s approach is purely descriptive, which allows me to provide my own interpretation of the material during lecture. I like the historical approach of the text. That provides the text with an orderly structure of the material." -  Curtis Smith, Penn State University

 

"I like the appendix information about writing a Term Paper and a Religious Visit Paper. The Internet Research Guide would also be helpful to students." - Tim Harrison, McKendree University
