CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Teach Yourself World Faiths Third Edition is an accessible and comprehensive
guide to the main religious beliefs of the world. It aims to help readers
become familiar with twelve of the main religious faiths in the world, covering
the history of each faith, its belief system, scriptures and holy books,
festivals and the organization that supports each faith. This new edition has
been fully revised to include recent debates, updated resources and a new
chapter on new religious movements that will cover faiths such as Jehovah's
Witnesses, Brahma Kumaris and Rastafarianism. This book is designed to present
all the essential information required by a reader who has no previous
knowledge of the religion but who wants to feel confident in dealing with
members of the faith community - in terms of their beliefs and attitudes and
also of the practical details of their culture, ceremony, diet and moral views.
