"Finally, for those inclined to undertake their own spiritual journeys ... tells visitors what to expect."
We North Americans live in a remarkably diverse society, and it's increasingly common to be invited to a wedding, funeral, or other religious service of a friend, relative, or coworker whose faith is different from our own.
These can be awkward situations....
These are just a few of the basic questions answered in How to Be a Perfect Stranger. This easy-to-read guidebook, with an "Everything You Need to Know Before You Go" checklist, helps the well-meaning guest to feel comfortable, participate to the fullest extent possible and avoid violating anyone's religious principles--while enriching their own spiritual understanding.
For people of all faiths, all backgrounds.

Great book on the basics of attending ceremonies of religions you aren't part of. If you're in this situation and want to make sure you don't offend, it's perfect. If you just want a introduction to any of the religions in this book, it's a great resource. Consulter l'avis complet
