Item description for Exploring the Religions of Our World by Nancy Clemmons...
Overview Exploring the Religions of Our World builds on teens' understanding and experience of their own Catholic Christian faith to study different religious traditions. The text begins with a study of Judeo-Christian history, practice, and tradition before expanding to the study of other ancient religions including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Shintoism that are now more prevalent than ever throughout the United States and all of North America. The text moves on to uncover a variety of religious traditions that sprang from America's Protestant roots including Mormonism; Jehovah's Witnesses; and the Church of Christ, Scientist. Each chapter begins with an introduction that connects the religion to a contemporary person, practice, or teaching. A brief history follows, including information on the founder and other major figures. Other sections include those on scripture or major writings, beliefs and practices, and sacred places and sacred times. Additionally, each chapter ends with a Catholic apologetic focus including ecumenical dialogue between the Catholic Church and the particular religion while pointing out differences and similarities in doctrine, tradition, and practice. Besides being unique in its comparisons of major religions beginning with the experience and knowledge most common among Catholic high school students, each section of the text that specifically refers to Christianity and Catholicism have been granted a Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur.
