Über diesen Titel


Encompassing traditional faiths, indigenous religions, and the new religious movements, this book focuses on the historical development and teachings of each religion and explores how these religions have evolved into contemporary beliefs and practices.

From the Publisher:

This exceptionally readable survey of the modern religious world explores the development, doctrines, and practices of today's major faiths -- both traditional faiths and new religious movements. Throughout, it emphasizes the personal consciousness of believers and their own account of themselves, their religion, and reality at large.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
