The headlines in our daily papers report news about unknown people in far away places. As often as not, the headlines are negative: "Sikhs Threaten Uprising," "Fundamentalist Muslims in Protest," "Orthodox Jews Clash with Israeli Government." These headlines no more represent the religious realities of the peoples of those lands than headlines about strife in Northern Ireland represent the religious realities of Catholics and Protestants. Still, the headlines to stimulate questions: Who are these people? What are they like? What do they believe? Of we are to understand the world in which we live and come to a deeper appreciation and love of others, an awareness of their religious world-view is indispensable. This volume provides a brief summary of the beliefs of Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shintoism, Taoism and other major world religions in the hope that, by shedding light on them, greater of their adherents will ensue.
