Praise for Comparative Religion: Investigate the World Through Religious Tradition
The abstractions of religion make it a tricky topic for objective and clear middle-level resources, but this dynamic book manages to be both informative and accessible. . . By examining complex beliefs and doctrine in an accessible and reader-friendly format, Mooney effectively teases out the commonalities among major world religions.
Kate Oxx, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, Saint Joseph’s University
” Comparative Religion presents the basic elements of five religious traditions to help readers become familiar with and reflect on those faiths. Most importantly, it attends to ways the major faiths have shaped and are shaping their world, and cues them to note how tremendously significant the impact of religion is.”
Daniel Veidlinger, Professor, Comparative Religion and Humanities, California State University, Chico
” This book is a very well executed, readable, and accurate portrayal of the world’s major religions. . . This book challenges students to really engage with the philosophy, history, and culture of the religions and it introduces them to a lot of new terms without overloading them.”
