Description

World Religions: Eastern Traditions is a wide-ranging and thought-provoking survey that recognizes the diverse traditions behind the monolithic labels of the major Eastern faiths. For each set of traditions, a specialist explores not only origins, central teachings, divisions and branches, and rituals and practices, but also cultural interactions and responses to modern challenges. Accessible and engaging, this contributed volume is widely considered to be the definitive introduction to the subject.

Contributor Notes

The late Willard G. Oxtoby, the original editor of this text, was professor emeritus at the University of Toronto, where he launched the graduate program in the study of religion. He authored a number of books including Experiencing India: European Descriptions and Impressions and The Meaning of Other Faiths.

Roy C. Amore is professor and an associate dean in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Windsor in Ontario. His extensive research in the areas of comparative religion and Asia has enabled him to author Two Masters, One Message, a book comparing the lives and teachings of Christ and Buddha, Developments in Buddhist Thought: Canadian Contributions to Buddhist Studies, and co-author Lustful Maidens and Ascetic Kings: Buddhist and Hindu Stories of Life.

Amir Hussain is professor in the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where he teaches courses on Islam and world religions. A Canadian of Pakistani origin, he is the author of Oil and Water: Two Faiths One God: An introduction to Islam for North Americans. He is also the editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Religion (JAAR).

Editorial Reviews

"This book is the best one I have seen for teaching Eastern religions. What sets it apart is its visual appeal, comprehensiveness, and organization." -Justine Noel, Camosun College


"Each section of the book is written by an expert in that field - the accuracy and scholarly quality of this approach is far better than a single-authored text." -Richard Mann, Carleton University
