The living faith of millions of people in the world's most important religious traditions is portrayed here with sympathy and intelligence, in each case emphasizing key elements. Author Kevin O'Donnell does not dissect each tradition, however. Instead he looks at each faith from a more personal angle, asking what it means for a person to belong to such a faith. Covering six major traditions-Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, together with shorter sections on Zoroastrianism, Baha'i, Confucianism, Taoism, and Shinto - the author follows the same pattern for each.
O'Donnell asks the reader to join in a spiritual exercise, personalizing the insights of each tradition into one's own journey of faith. Illustrated throughout with full color photography, Inside World Religions invites the reader on a journey of encounter and self-discovery.
