Book Description :
Robert Van Voorst's ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES, now in its fifth edition, is the most widely adopted anthology in comparative world religions courses. Now, for the first time, Wadsworth is proud to present Van Voorst's ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES: WESTERN RELIGIONS. This new volume contains not only all of the scriptural selections from the previous ANTHOLOGY, but also newer textual material for each religion that brings scripture study closer to our own time. Included in this concise, affordable reader is coverage of Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and four new religious movements?Baha'i, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Christian Science, and the Unification Church. Van Voorst's characteristic clarity and pedagogical vision make for a student-friendly and scholarly dependable guide to the history, doctrines, ethical systems, structures and rituals of these major Western religions.
