The World's Religions: Worldviews and Contemporary Issues
William A. Young employs a set of engaging, essential questions to draw students into a concise, contemporary study of the world's religions. Coverage includes major religions, as well as indigenous religions and new religious movements, providing basic history and worldviews of each. Unlike other leading texts on the market, Young devotes an entire section to twenty-first century ethical concerns--ecology, economics, war, capital punishment, abortion, euthanasia, gender, and sexual orientation--describing in a balanced manner how world religions understand and address these issues.
