A thorough survey of world religions, the 8th edition of Living Religions by Mary Pat Fisher captures the essence of holy traditions, their relevance in the lives of people who practice each faith, and their significance in today's world. The book offers an account of various traditional religions along with indigenous practices, and also tackles the development of more current spiritual movements. It is both a study of the historical practices and beliefs of each featured religion and an examination of their dynamism. It also undertakes the different roles of each sector of society (especially of women) in the religious context, as well as the different concerns that surround religion, including fundamentalism and various interfaith efforts. Mary Pat Fisher sought help from various consultants who are also experts in the field of religion to make Living Religions (8th Edition) ISBN 9780205835850 a more efficient tool in discussing the faiths and religious beliefs that people from all over the world adhere to. The book consists of 13 chapters, each devoted to a certain religious movement. Chapter 1 talks about religious responses, why religion exists, as well as the negative aspects of having organized religions. Chapters 2 through 11 runs down various types of religion, from indigenous ways to some of the most popularly studied beliefs like Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto, Judaism, Daoism, Christianity, Sikhism, Islam, and many others. The book concludes with a discussion of new religious movements and the impact of religion in the 21st century. Each chapter ends with learning aids – suggested readings, key terms, review points, discussion questions, and a MyReligionLab section. Author Mary Pat Fisher is known for her academic researches about the faith systems of the world. She also writes books on art.
