Summary

For introductory courses in world religions., comparative religions or introduction to religion. Conceived for students with little or no background in the academic study of religions,Religions of the Worldoffers the most broad coverage of world religions supported by primary source documents, coverage of religions as they exist today, and integrated media resources. In preparing the eleventh edition of Religions of the World, Mark Woodward drew on his experience in teaching an introductory course on the religions of the world to thousands of undergraduates over the last two decades, living and working in Buddhist, Muslim and Chinese cultures for extended periods and on conversations with friends and colleagues in the Arizona Native American community. In this edition, he has edited the text closely for clarity and readability and made other changes to keep it up to date and accurate including updating all sections on religion today for each tradition.Religions of the World is comprehensive, readable, and engaging for all students.
