World Religions

Western Traditions

Third Edition

Edited by Willard G. Oxtoby and Amir Hussain

Building upon its already strong foundation, the third edition of World Religions: Western Traditions examines in detail the major Western religious traditions: Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Islam, and religions of the ancient world. Featuring work from renowned contributors, this rich and descriptive text discusses the historical basis for the religious traditions, shows how they have developed over time, and explains how they are now situated in the contemporary world. The third edition features a full, four-color redesign; an introductory chapter ("Why Religion?"); a concluding chapter ("Current Trends in Religion"); new chapters on ancient religions, indigenous traditions, and new religious movements; more coverage of women throughout; numerous pedagogical features; and a companion website.
