This highly visual book explores what it really means - day to day - to live as a believer of one of the six major world faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism and Hinduism), focusing on the following: • the origins of the faith • concepts of God or Ultimate Reality • teachers of the way (major figures and Scriptures) • paths to peace (ways of seeking God) • treasury of the heart (key beliefs) • awe and wonder (worship) • journey into mystery (symbols and rituals) • making merry (festivals) • today (issues facing the faith today). The book also includes material on Zoroastrianism, Baha'i, Confucianism, Taoism, Shinto and Jainism.
KEVIN O’DONNELL is an Anglican priest who was an RE teacher both before and after theological training at St Stephen’s House, Oxford. Before returning to parish ministry in 1999 he was chaplain at Heathfield School, Ascot. He is the author of a number of RE text books and contributor to others.
