History of Religions in the Caribbean
All the major religions of the world as well as some indigenous outgrowths of these faiths are found in the Caribbean. In this book, Dr. Bisnauth covers the history of a wide range of religions, from the vanished beliefs of the Caribs and Arawaks to the Rastafarianism of today. He shows how each religion arrived and developed in the Caribbean area, culminating in the remarkable degree of mutual tolerance which now exists there.
