About this product
- DescriptionIn Introduction to Religious Studies, Harvey J. Sindima provides an unconventional approach to the study of world religions. Often, books and courses on religious studies focus on the major world religions. This approach, however, frequently igres other religious experiences, such as those of various African groups as well as the indigeus people of the Americas and Australia. These less widespread religions are commonly described in pejorative terms such as primitive religions or n-literate religions. Focusing solely on well-kwn religions is an approach that impoverishes religious studies and deprives students of the ermous wealth of religious kwledge of the world. Introduction to Religious Studies pulls together the diverse religious experience of Africans, Native Americans, and the indigeus peoples of Australia in order to provide a comprehensive introduction to the study of religion and broaden the horizons of religious studies students. Under each theme or topic, examples are drawn from religions of salvation as well as African and Native American religious traditions. This book provides students with a deep, wide, and very rich introduction to religious studies.
