Book: World Religions A Historical Approach by Solomon NigosianThis book gives a clear-cut, precise understanding of all the major and relatively better known religions of the world. I recommend this for whomsoever needing background knowledge in religion, especially from a historical context. This is a comprehensive textbook, indeed.
A concise, balanced, and reasonably priced introductory text, World Religions takes a historical approach to the ideological and cultural aspects of several religions. More than just a collection of facts about beliefs and mores, this unique text offers students a complex portrait of each religion, with scholarly viewpoints interspersed throughout.
S. A. NIGOSIAN, a research associate at Victoria College of the University of Toronto, has been teaching in the Religion Department for over 25 years. His most recent publications include: Islam: Its History, Teaching, and Practices (2004), From Ancient Writings to Sacred Texts: The Old Testament and Apocrypha (2004), and The Zoroastrian Faith: Tradition and Modern Research (1993). His articles on Near Eastern Religions and the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament are published frequently in professional journals such as Studies in Religion, Journal of Asian and African Studies, Theological Review, Vetus Testamentum, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, and Biblica.
