From the Back Cover:

Comparing Religions is a next-generation textbook that teaches the art and practice of comparison as a vital skill in our modern globalizing world. Using a three-part "initiatory" structure, the book provides the reader with a map and an effective process through which to understand and practice the comparative analysis of religion.

The three-part structure leads readers through:

  • an historical outline of comparative practices, both in world history and in the modern West, demonstrating that comparative forms of understanding religion are ancient and global
  • six chapters focusing on classic comparativist themes, exploring and modeling the nature of responsible com parativist practice
  • the exploration of a number of key strategies through which to understand, analyze, and re-read religion with a sense of accomplishment and closure

The result is a fascinating, wide-ranging, and genuinely exciting book that will inspire as well as guide readers who wish to think seriously about religious pluralism in the modern world. By embracing the last three decades of comparative work and critical theory, the book strikes a new balance and offers a positive vision of the field’s most promising future. Throughout, the impact of comparativist practices on individuals is fully acknowledged and worked with. Toward this same end, the book contains numerous features to help students, professionals and interested readers understand this challenging but extraordinarily rich area of critique and wonder.

The supporting website features numerous additional resources, including information on individual religious traditions, images, a glossary, discussion questions, links to other sites, and an interview with the author. These resources are available at www.wiley.com/go/kripal.
