Textul de pe ultima copertă

"This volume is a teacher's dream. It explains theories of religion in accessible language, describes the practices and beliefs of major religions, includes numerous photos and charts to hold student interest, and exhibits a fine balance between detail and overview. Charles Farhadian has written an excellent introduction to world religions for the undergraduate Christian perspective. It will remain a textbook of choice for years to come."
--Dana L. Robert, Boston University; author of Christian Mission: How Christianity Became a World Religion

"Lushness of illustration aside--and there's plenty of that!--what Introducing World Religions does best is to illustrate in the person of the author himself a model for 'Christian engagement' with the world's religions, old and new. Exemplifying how to be both grounded and open, Charles Farhadian wants us to learn about the religions so that we can learn from them and with them as well. Not only that, he also realizes that learning without a location--a perspective from nowhere in particular--is an impossibility. Interspersed throughout, the author's 'Christian Reflections' will prove meaningful to Christians of all persuasions."
--Richard Fox Young, Princeton Theological Seminary

"An excellent and long-awaited book with a well-balanced coverage on East Asian religions (Taoism and Confucianism) and East Asian Christianity, which have been very much neglected in the past. This is an indispensable text for college and other courses related to introducing world religions not only in the West but also in the East. Timely and properly written in this global age of cross-cultural necessity."
--Heup Young Kim, Kangnam University, South Korea

"We are more than machines. We have spirits that long for meaning, for justice, for relationships. In this clearly organized book, Charles Farhadian shows how each of the great religions offers paths for our quests. Like a conversation with a well-traveled friend, the style makes complex topics accessible and the photos help us visualize believers across the globe. In today's connected world, this book is a treasure."
--Miriam Adeney, Seattle Pacific University

"Farhadian succeeds in providing a digestible overview of world religions from an ecumenical Christian perspective, avoiding any value judgments, a point of view that distinguishes the book from other reference offerings on the subject. A worthy addition for such collections supporting undergraduate studies in religion or theology."
