Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879759429, Paperback)

Frustrated at the level of ignorance about the Christian church and other world religions, author Monroe has developed a helpful, comprehensive guide to the world's many faiths. Easy-to-read and objective, "World Religions" gives readers a historically correct picture of the world's religious belief systems comparing East and West. Among the religions examined are: prehistoric cosmic religions, the river valley religions of Ancient Egypt, the Greek gods, Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity with a special emphasis on Catholicism. Monroe addresses some of the historical influences, central doctrines and ruling deities of each faith. He traces the evolution of each faith, tracks major historical changes, and provides in-depth discussions of such events as the Reformation, groups of monotheists, cults, the universality of religious experience, and much more.
