Ranging across the globe, contributors explain the sources and history of today's religious systems, from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, and Islam, to regional groups in Africa, China, and Japan. Readers will find a wealth of detail on doctrines, practices, rites of passage, rituals, and the role of gender in modern faiths.
