Jacob Neusner is Research Professor of Religion and Theology and Senior Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Theology, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. He is the author of Classics of Judaism: A Textbook and Reader and Judaism When Christianity Began as well as the co-editor of The Religion Factor: An Introduction to How Religion Matters—all available from Westminster John Knox Press.From Library Journal:
In this work, whose format suggests a collection of essays instead of a standard textbook, each of 14 chapters is devoted to a religious group or topic and written by a prominent scholar in the field of religious studies. The scholars provide factual data concerning each religion or topic, as well as their personal observations, opinions, and conclusions, giving the student not only a well-informed introduction to religions in America but also a sense that these religions are alive, active, and relevant to one's and the world's well-being. Of special interest are the chapters on religion and its relationship to women, politics, and society in general. Every chapter ends with study questions, essay topics, word explorations, and a further reading list. Recommended for high school libraries and undergraduate college libraries.
