World Religions Today: Hinduism (Hardback, New title)

By Quaglia, Gianna

This general introduction to religions makes a valuable information resource for Religious Education students. Written by a highly experienced author of books on religion for children, it covers the foundation and history of 6 major religions. It continues by exploring the belief...s, teachings and practices, which includes a look at sacred texts and places of worship. The final chapters focus on religion and society, and its role in the modern world. A special feature of the book is the 'in our own words' panels in which practicing members of that faith give a personal perspective on being their religion today. There are numerous panels that give more detailed information on specific aspects, as well as quoting important texts. Imaginatively chosen photos with detailed captions extend the range of information presented. Maps and diagrams show the distribution of believers around the world. An historical timeline, glossary and index all contribute to making this a highly engaging and accessible source of information.
