Editorial Reviews

"I truly love this textbook (and its Eastern counterpart). I feel that it masterfully explores the various world religions with great detail and clarity while making them accessible to students." --Matthew Hill, Spring Arbor University


"This textbook covers Judaism, Christianity, and Islam very clearly and strikes the right balance between succinct and comprehensive." --Tim Labron, Concordia University of Edmonton


"This text is extremely well-organized, well-written, and engaging, with very good coverage of modern expressions of each tradition." --Michelle Rebidoux, Memorial University of Newfoundland


"The chapter-opening outlines and end-of-chapter summaries provide good introductions and conclusions to the chapters. I like the 'Sacred Text' tables; they provide brief overviews of the different religious texts." --Colin James Law, University of Georgia
