Description

What does it mean to live as a religious person today? 'Religions in Focus' offers an introduction to living religions, examining the relationship between present-day demands and religious traditions, sacred texts and authoritative teachings. The essays examine how religion is expressed across the world; from Sikhs, shamans and animists, indigenous religionists in Africa and the African diaspora, to Muslims, Latter Day Saints, Jews, Japanese religionists, and Zoroastrians. 'Religions in Focus' presents an engaging analysis of religious life that will be of interest to students of anthropology and religion.
