Summary
The book devotes a chapter to each of the world religions. All but one of the chapters are written by a member of that faith community, thus giving insiders' views into the theology, spirituality and religious practice of the faith. The introduction encourages respect and engagement with those of other faiths. It emphasises the cultural nature of religion, its importance to society and notes the rise of interest in the study of religious traditions in the face of contemporary geopolitics. It does not attempt to address these politics.
