Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140514074, Mass Market Paperback)

This survey of active twentieth-century religions has been completely revised, with all its chapters updated to include modern developments and recent scholarship, and with seven entirely new chapters. A team of over twenty leading international scholars provides up-to-date information on:
-- The sources and history of the world's religions, from Buddhism to Zoroastrianism
-- Their teaching, practices, and popular traditions
-- Gender and spirituality; the black African diaspora
-- Developments in the twentieth century and recent scholarship, including new material on China

With charts and diagrams to illustrate and clarify the text, A New Handbook of Living Religions is the definitive guide to understanding the world's active belief systems and an ideal companion volume to John R. Hinnells's The Penguin Dictionary of Religions.
