Summary

Summary

This work is a set text for Open University module A213 World Religions starting in February 1998. It includes materials relating to six of the world's most influential religious traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism. The religions are considered in their global setting, and the selection of readings strikes a balance between providing an account of their historical development and exploring their beliefs and practices in the context of the latter half of the 20th century. A study of the thematic topics of sacred place, women in religion and making moral decisions provides another perspective on these same faiths.
