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.
