This makes it vital that we understand as much as we can about the world’s religions. The World Religions series, of which this book is a part, sets out to achieve this aim.

Carefully chosen photographs complement the text, and sidebars, a map, fact file, glossary, bibliography, and index are included to help readers gain a more complete understanding of the subject at hand.
