Description

Places religious studies squarely within the twenty-first century

Introducing Religion, 4/e explores the different ways of looking at religion in the twenty-first century. A broad overview to religious studies as a discipline introduces students to the various subjects of religion. Introducing Religion teaches readers how to think in academic religious studies and its main areas, included: sociology of religion, psychology of religion, history of religion, religion and art, ethics, and more.

The fourth edition has been expanded with new chapters exploring topics of contemporary interest: myth, spiritual paths, religion and popular culture, religion in the computer age, religion and war. Contemporary topics engage today’s students, relating the topics to the changing world around them.  

MySearchLab is a part of the Elllwood program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore religious studies across more subjects. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
