Four teachers of philosophy and religion at the College of DuPage present a textbook for an introductory course in the academic study of religion. After setting out the theories and methods of the discipline, they explore such matters as what religion is, origins and founders, scriptures, suffering and evil, art, ritual, morality and ethics, religious experience, salvation and the meaning of life, and religion and society in a global age.
