Religious Studies : Comparative Religion (Hardcover)
about this item
This set contains six facsimiles from our imprints T&T Clark, The Athlone Press, Sheffield Academic Press and Continuum and focuses on comparing the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
The volumes in this collection compare the different religions based on their prophets, their teachings and cultural influence, but also in how they face the challenge of an increasingly secular world. They are concerned with the similarities between the religions they discuss rather than their differences, hence supporting the view that religions should not be pitted against each other but instead be understood as faiths favouring understanding and togetherness.
All titles are available as set or as individual volumes. Titles include:
