This comprehensive, user-friendly text introduces students to the
principal world faiths. Along with the substantial content and
information, each chapter includes classroom exercises that are
designed to generate certain skills, such as teamwork, evaluation
and analysis. Teachers will also welcome the inclusion of a full
glossary, annotated bibliography, fact sheets, revision questions
and comparative questions. A helpful introduction looks at ways the
teacher can use the book in the classroom and explains its
structure and purpose.
This text is cross-referenced to and can be used in conjunction
with Markham's "World Religions Reader," Second Edition as a
complete teaching package for comparative religion courses. The two
texts follow a similar structure, so that for each religion they
look at the Spirit of a Tradition, Worldviews, Institutions and
Rituals, Ethical Expression and Modern Expressions. This structure
enables cross-religious comparison. Each chapter of Encountering
Religion also includes a substantial historical survey so the
student understands the origins of the beliefs, rituals, and ethics
which are then described. To set the scene for examining different
religious traditions, initial chapters look at what religion is and
at different approaches to studying religion.
