Preface. Almost from the start of civilization, more than 10,000 years ago, religion has shaped human history. Today more than half the world’s population practice a major religion or indigenous spiritual tradition. In many 21st-century societies, including the United States, religion still shapes people’s lives and plays a key role in politics and culture. And in societies throughout the world increasing ethnic and cultural diversity has led to a variety of religions being practiced side by side. This makes it vital that we understand as much as we can about the world’s religions. The World Religions series, of which this book is a part, sets out to achieve this aim. It is written and designed to appeal to both students and general readers. The books offer clear, accessible overviews of the major religious traditions and institutions of our time. Each volume in the series describes where a particular religion is practiced, its origins and history, its central beliefs and important rituals, and its contributions to world civilization. Carefully chosen photographs complement the text, and sidebars, a map, fact file, glossary, bibliography, and index are included to help readers gain a more complete understanding of the subject at hand. These books will help clarify what religion is all about and reveal both the similarities and differences in the great spiritual traditions practiced around the world today. ...
