Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS by Ninian Smart.

"In this study of world religions, Part 1 charts the historical development of religions in the ancient worlds, while Part 2 follows how they changed after the Renaissance, the settling of the Americas, and other cultural shifts. Smart is primarily a historian, and the emphasis here is on world religions in terms of world history and constantly developing systems of faith, belief, and theology. Recommended."
- Library Journal (US) reviews:

"The World's Religions offers a fascinating insight into a wide range of faiths, their history and their followers. In the richly illustrated new edition of this popular book, religions are described through their symbols, rituals, followers, architecture and art. References, statistics, maps and pictures have been updated and added."

"FIVE STARS!!! Perhaps the only rationale, fair, equal and balanced treatment of world religions. All are presented fairly and justly with a non judgemental attitude, just a balanced account of their origins and practices. Indispensable in a time of great misunderstanding and intolerance."

"FIVE STARS! This book is fantastic. It is probably the most in depth book on this topic I've ever read. It focuses on the main world religions, as well as some of the more obscure faiths/beliefs from around the world. It has beautiful photographs and a clear, engaging style. You could just as easily read it in one go, or dip into it as the mood takes you. Unsurpassed reading."
