Widely considered the best, most accessible introduction to the world's religions, this all-new version has been deepened and enhanced by an additional thirty years of teaching and study, the use of inclusive landguage, and vital new dimensions.  In addition to detailed, absorbing, and highly readable chapters on Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, this new edition features expanded sections on the inner dimensions of these great religions, with fresh emphais on Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, and the teachings of Jesus.  Included here also is a new chapter on the primal religions-the native traditions of the Americas, Australia, Africa, and Oceania.
