This week I’m offering Introducing World Religions by Charles E. Farhadian (Baker Academic). This is an impressive book academically and beautiful as well. Here’s the catalog description:
“This beautifully designed, full-color textbook offers a comprehensive introduction to the world’s religions, including history, beliefs, worship practices, and contemporary expressions. Charles Farhadian, a seasoned teacher and recognized expert on world religions, provides an empathetic account that both affirms Christian uniqueness and encourages openness to various religious traditions. His nuanced, ecumenical perspective enables readers to appreciate both Christianity and the world’s religions in new ways. The book highlights similarities, dissimilarities, and challenging issues for Christians and includes significant selections from sacred texts to enhance learning. Pedagogical features include sidebars, charts, key terms, an extensive glossary, over two hundred illustrations, and about a dozen maps.”
