Description

Religion plays a major role in nearly every community around the world, impacting people's beliefs, actions, politics, and ways of life perhaps more than any other factor. More than two-thirds of the world's people claim to follow a religion, and more than 4,000 religions exist around the world, resulting in a global religious population that is incredibly vast and diverse.

Instant Expert: World Religions offers readers a simple and inviting introduction to the histories and stories, beliefs and rituals, literature and festivals, and people and places of eleven significant and influential faiths. This is a valuable guide for quick reference, providing a glimpse into the Bahß'× Faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, and Zoroastrianism. In just one hour, readers will gain greater understanding of the major practices and features of each religion, building an important awareness of varying belief systems around the world.

Instant Experts is a series of short, small-format books covering today's core religious topics. Each book is designed to give the reader all the essential information they need in an hour's read, offering a solid foundation for further conversation and study.
