This unique volume accomplishes two goals: it connects today's religions to their classical beliefs and practices and focuses on how these religions have both radically changed the modern world and been changed by it. The book is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids--text boxes, timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, a comprehensive glossary of key terms, and suggestions for further reading--and more than 200 photographs. World Religions Today, Sixth Edition, is also available as two separate volumes: Religions of Asia Today, Fourth Edition: 978-0-19-064242-6 Religions of the West Today, Fourth Edition: 978-0-19-064241-9
