Whose religion is the best? The question is bound to arise because we live in a world where there has been both a decline in the authority of religious orthodoxies and an increase in the accessibility of competing faiths and ideologies.From Booklist:
One in a series of short books intended to introduce complex contemporary issues to nonspecialist audiences, this simple introduction to world relgions and a call to global citizenship by an internationally know scholar certainly succeeds in being nonspecialist. As an introduction, it will probably be most valuable for young adult audiences. It may also prove appealing and useful as a starting point for the substantial audience of spiritual seekers shopping for a worldview in a contemporary marketplace of diverse religious and secular outlooks.
