Throughout history the religions of the world have sought to provide answers to life's deepest questions, solace in times of suffering, and insight into truth. But for all they share in common, the religions of the world are very diverse - stemming from different histories, places, and people. This Compact Guide will take you through a tour of the world's biggest religions - providing detailed insight into their origins, beliefs and practices. Illustrated throughout with stunning photos and art, it brings the key figures and images of each religion to life, and is a perfect introduction for those exploring world faiths (or those who just need a quick reference tool!). Religions covered include: Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Bahai, Confucianism, Taoism and Shinto.
