A comprehensive introduction to the world of religion, it includes:
* religion and culture
* how power operates in religion
* gender issues
* the role of belief, rituals, and religious texts
* religion in the contemporary world
Religion: The Basics offers an invaluable and up-to-date overview for anyone wanting to find out more about this fascinating subject.
