IVP: Pocket Guide to World Religions
Have you ever wondered . . .
- what the red dot on an Indian woman’s forehead means?
- whether all Buddhist monks practice martial arts?
- if the Emperor of Japan is still considered a god?
Here is a concise, informative guide for anyone looking for answers to basic questions about the world’s varied religions. In short, incisive chapters, Winfried Corduan introduces readers to twelve of the world’s major religions, including Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Parsi, Shinto and Sikhism. For each, he offers brief descriptions of its name, numbers and distribution, key symbols, history, Scriptures, major beliefs, subgroups, worship practices, home practices, clothing, diet and calendar. Also included are even briefer descriptions of sixteen new religious movements and traditional or tribal religions.
This book is for students, pastors and other busy people who want the quick, bare-facts scoop on current religions.
