More Than One: An Introduction to World Religions
From the publisher:
"More than One is a new text with beautiful photos throughout that encourage readers to experience the powerful diversity of the world’s religions. After surveying indigenous religious communities and ancient cultures, the book provides full treatment on the religions of Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Daoism, Confucianism, Shintoism, and Zoroastrianism. Turning to the monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the book elucidates what has led to these religions’ vast and global rise across world civilizations. The concluding chapter delineates the emergence of new alternative religions, the rise of irreligion, and issues around secularization in the modern world."
