* Gives an account of the history, the theological basis, the practice and the current state of the study of religion and religions throughout the world * Combines a clear and non-technical style of presentation with a structure and range of contributions which reflect the richness and complexity of religion itself, of the religions of the world and the study of religions * Comprehensive index, bibliographies and suggestions for further reading `Intriguing philosophical questions are raised about the nature of religion and the qualities needed for studying it.' - Times Higher Education Supplement `Excellent book ... remarkably successful, impressive as much for the sheer scale of the undertaking as for its consistent standard of analysis. It is a fine achievement which will serve both as a very suitable textbook for students and a reliable guide to the state of scholarship in the History and Study of Religions.' - Heythrop Journal

Book Description :

"Religions speak in symbols-fire, cloud, hills and high places, darkness and light, incense, candles, colors. Religions, though, perhaps love water best. Buddhists use water for blessing. Hindus purify themselves in rivers. Christians undergo baptism in water as a rite of initiation. Followers of Islam and Shinto cleanse themselves with water before prayer. Water means change, purification, and new beginnings. Because water can signify so much to us, it is the major symbol of this book. By studying many religions, we also hope to be cleansed and brought to new life. This book was written for my students. Keeping their needs in mind, I have tried to provide what is essential and to present it in clear language. I want to talk about doctrine and practice. Yet I also hope to show some of those things that have captivated me: religious music, art, and architecture. I want to show my respect for all religious traditions, both in a scholarly and an approachable way. Finally, I hope to invite students not only to read about religions, but also to experience them firsthand. It is like the difference between reading maps of a country and then actually traveling on its roads and seeing its sights. Experience brings the prize"--

Experiencing the World’s Religions integrated program supports today’s students and provides skills that extend beyond the Introduction to Religion course, engaging both non-majors and majors in the subject.

The 6th edition of Experiencing the World’s Religions continues to include primary sources, current examples, and coverage of women, to ensure students are introduced to unfamiliar religions in ways that are accessible, inviting, and intriguing. Experiencing these concepts and cultures is the hallmark of Michael Molloy’s approach. His pedagogy and activities are now fully integrated and assessable within Connect Religion, to make for an increased understanding of the most important and memorable elements of each religion. Writing activities in Connect Religion, tied to chapter narrative, offer students the chance to develop their critical analysis skills and put their informed opinions on religion into writing.
