Introduction To Religious Studies
This introduction, in the author's words, describes 'the story of attempts to understand, interpret and explain the reality of religious plurality' and uncovers the assumptions which have shaped these attempts. It also assesses a number of approaches to religions, such as the historical, phenomenological and the social, and concludes with a discussion of such basic issues as authority and mysticism.
