Product Details

Praise

One of the best thought out and written introductions to the study of religion I have seen thus far. It not only explains but invites discussion and comment. –Charles H. Long, University of California, Santa Barbara

“A good introduction to the phenomenology of religion. Stressing that religions are not just systems of belief, but forms of behavior…Paden focuses on four key complementary categories: myth, ritual, gods and systems of purity.” –Choice

“[Religious Worlds] provides clear bases of comparison from all of the world religions.” –American Anthropologist

“A richly textured study of religion . . . . erudite and written in a very lucid prose style.” –Philosophy East & West

“A useful overview of contemporary trends in the study of the faiths of today’s world.” –Publishers Weekly

“A work of thoughtful breadth.” –Religious Studies Review
