A broad interpretation of world religions has been adopted and coverage includes the Baha'i faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism and Zoroastrianism, as well as cross-cultural studies and inter-faith dialogue.

Description : Drawing on a term used originally in social anthropology, the contributors to this volume take a different world religion as the starting point of their analysis of various themes, seeking to explore and illuminate the parallels and differences throughout. It is only in so doing that we can gain a real awareness of what it means to belong to any one religion. Rites of Passage is the new title in this series which addresses important issues of the day, and examines how each of the eight major religions approaches a particular theme. Constructed to be comparative, the books are both authoritative and accessible.

Description : Considerable work has been done on the European exploration of myth, first in the Renaissance and then in the nineteenth century. This book covers an area that is new territory by looking at ways in which this work can contribute to an understanding of the primacy of myth in religious life. The authors examine the idea of 'mythistory' - the complex relationship in religions between myth and history - and explore the different ways in which religious storytelling is related to the particular enterprise of storytelling that is called history.

Description : This work provides an evaluation of the cosmos and the planet by each of the various religions. It looks at the status of the natural order in its own right, as well as the status and responsibilities of humans in that order. The following questions are tackled: Is the relationship one of dominion, stewardship, union or duality? What is the status of animals? How far do the moral considerations that affect humans extend to animals - if at all? Do the different religions offer any distinctive understanding of the status of animals? What, if anything, is there in religious anthropologies which distinguishes humans from (or unifies them with) animals? What is the ultimate condition of nature in the religious (often eschatological) vision?
