For courses in World Religions


Help students understand the role of modern religions in today’s changing world
Living Religions provides a clear and straightforward account of the development, doctrines, and practices of the major faiths followed today. The emphasis throughout is on the personal consciousness of believers and their own accounts of their religion and its relevance in contemporary life. Authors Mary Pat Fisher and Robin Rinehart emphasize cultural customs, popular spiritual practices, and varieties of religious ways, as opposed to distinct monolithic institutionalized religions. The Tenth Edition includes new and revised content that helps students see how religion intersects with contemporary issues, including globalization, economics, and environmental and societal issues.

Living Religions, Tenth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
