Summary
For billions of people, having a religious belief system provides purpose in life. For some, religion serves as a guide for moral behavior. Studies have shown even children maintain a natural intuitiveness about the origins of the world. Today's world is one in which our understanding of world religions is both understatedly important, as well as increasingly complex. After many years of exploring the foundations of various world religions, Jason Boyett has written this comprehensive yet easy-to-understand exploration of the twelve major world religions through a meticulous, yet unbiased lens. 12 Major World Religions offers an impartial look at where each of these belief systems intersects, how they differ, and why some have been or are currently misunderstood. Whether religion is a part of your life or not, 12 Major World Religions will expand your understanding of the prominent belief systems in today's world beyond the scope of The Big 7, with detailed explorations of Baha'i, Jainism, Shinto, and more
