Getting to the heart of what Religion actually is Aug. 29 2014

Here goes that old, old college student again. 80 years old and a sophomore, and, yeah, bragging about it a bit. This semester I decided on a unit about Religion. Unlike a sectarian school syllabus such as might be found at Notre Dame, BYU, or SMU, this course, offered in a state school is non-sectarian. I am a devout member of a Christian faith, but I have always had an intense interest in the faiths found in all the variety all over the world. This book is one of the assigned texts, and, rather than describing what Mormons or Muslims or Buddhists "do", it digs much deeper, starting with a chapter on the task of defining "sacred". Eye opening, eminently readable, and engaging.
Required reading for a course but good read as well May 13 2014

I had to read this book for a course focusing on religion and business. Very good coverage of the major religions and their main approach.

Try to find it from a local library first, if at all possible. I needed it for class and none of the public libraries around my location had even heard of the author, it was a pretty expensive purchase for only using it for two weeks of class.

This was a college text needed for class. It is what it is - a college text book. It is easy to read and understand and that is a plus.
