Since its release in 1982, Eerdmans Handbook to the World's Religions has sold more than 240,000 copies in ten different languages. Now thoroughly revised and updated, this comprehensive guide traces the world's religions from the earliest forms of worship to the present day. Articles by more than 50 specialists clearly and objectively describe each faith along with its history, scriptures, worship, beliefs, and practices. Covered are the ancient religions of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, the primal religions, and the living religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Parsis, Sikhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. The book includes more than 200 photographs (100 in full color), helpful maps and charts, and a handy "Rapid Fact Finder" glossary for quick reference to 1,100 entries. This edition includes significant revisions and expansions of the articles covering Islam, Judaism, and Christianity and an entirely new section on religion in today's world.
