Western Religions Reader

Free sample

Designed as an introductory reader for a Western Religions course, this eBook provides key texts for illustrating the western religious traditions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), with a background chapter on ancient religions of the Mediterranean and Mesopotamian worlds. There are 46 passages, 17 symbols, 3 Quick Facts pages, 3 audio clips (the shofar, the Gregorian chant, and the Muslim call to prayer), and links to about 200 audio files of technical terms related to the western religious traditions. Each selection has an introduction and footnotes to help the reader understand the context of the passage. This eBook uses material, slightly edited, from our larger World Religions Reader, an eBook designed for a full World Religions course. Annotated and edited by Thomas Robinson, with contributions from colleagues at the University of Lethbridge, Professors James Linville, Atif Khalil, and Kevin McGeough.
