Focusing on Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, this book traces the origins and spread of these "world" or "universal" religions. By examining cross-cultural encounters and inviting students to consider similarities and differences in the meanings they ascribe to human life, the book highlights the relationship between religious and cultural life and the political and social context in which it is embedded.
