Religions flourish everywhere around the world, shaping people’s lives, providing meaning and spiritual guidance in a perplexing world, and giving comfort in  times of distress. Religion: A Crash Course examines a whole spectrum of beliefs from polytheism through monotheism to spiritual atheism. Taking a geographical approach, it covers the ancient religions from the Indian subcontinent, China, and Japan through to the Abrahamic faiths of Arabia and Europe. Finally, the less well-documented religions of Africa, Australasia, and the Americas are explored as well as recent phenomena in the New World. This accessible introduction to religion includes: • 52 topics examining a diverse range of belief systems and religious practices • profiles of key religious texts • biographies of influential figures.
