Is religion the same as culture? How does it fit with life in the modern world? Do you have to 'believe' to be part of one? From televangelism in the American South to the wearing of hijab in Britain and Egypt; from the rise of paganism to the aftermath of September 11th, this accessible guide looks at the ways in which religion interacts with the everyday world in which we live. A comprehensive introduction to the world of religion, it includes:
* religion and culture
* how power operates in religion
* gender issues
* the role of belief, rituals, and religious texts
* religion in the contemporary world
Religion: The Basics offers an invaluable and up-to-date overview for anyone wanting to find out more about this fascinating subject.
