9780205956401: Living Religions (9th Edition)

Modern religions in today’s changing world

 

Living Religions emphasizes the personal consciousness of believers and their own accounts of their religion and relevance in the present day. Mary Pat Fisher considers how the contemporary beliefs and practices of each of these traditions has evolved, and explores the changing nature of each religion. The ninth edition focuses on cultural customs, popular spiritual practices, mixtures of religions, and varieties of religions ways.  Expanded coverage of women, including women’s voices and contributions, is woven into the discussion of each religion.

 

Living Religions provides a sympathetic approach to the historical teachings of traditional faiths, indigenous religions, and new religious movements. The text follows a clear and straightforward account of the development, doctrines, and practices of the major faiths followed today.

 

 

MyReligionLab is an integral part of the Fisher program. Key learning applications include MyReligionLibrary, Closer Look tours, and a personalized study plan.

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.

Review:

“[The text is teachable], given the variety of pedagogical tools on display within each chapter, as well as the MyReligionLab option. This text would prove an excellent companion and dialogue partner for the student.”

    - Chris Newcomb, Bethune-Cookman University

 

“I believe the text does a very nice job of providing detail without becoming overwhelming from the perspective of the introductory student.

    -Charles Johnson, Washtenaw Community College

 

“The organization is well done and logical. The consistent layout helps the readers to organize and compare the religions in their understanding of it

    - Ivory Lyons, University of Mount Union


“My students consistently find the book interesting and compelling.”

    - Barbara Darling-Smith, Wheaton College
