Synopsis

Religions play a major role in today's world. This book gives you a simple and accessible introduction to the main beliefs and practices of significant and influential faiths. Joanne O'Brien and Sandra Palmer provide key facts about religions - their histories and stories, their beliefs and rituals, their literature and festivals, their people and places. This book also recognises the major differences within each religion. This is a valuable guide for quick reference and offers a glimpse of the world of beliefs. The religions covered are Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, and Zoroastrianism.

Joanne O'Brien has written numerous education and general reference books on world religions, and has worked with the BBC on religious current affairs programmes and historical documentaries. Sandra Palmer was a senior lecturer in Religious Education at Manchester Metropolitan University for seventeen years. She is actively involved in interfaith dialogue.
