Summary

Summary

Death and the Afterlife completes the Pilgrim Library of World Religions series. Here, four fundamental questions are posed to five religious traditions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam): Why does one die? How should one die? What happens after death? How do resurrection and reincarnation fit with this tradition? The answers, from acknowledged experts in these religions, not only give insight into the beliefs and traditions of these faiths but also help readers to pick out the similarities and differences among them. While written for college-level introductory religious studies courses, this volume is also well suited to anyone interested in religion.
