“Religion” is a term that the media often use without any clarification. But it is a loaded word that encompasses hundreds of different beliefs. Religion can be seen as a source of war and peace, love and hate, dialogue and narrow-mindedness. The globalization of communications has raised awareness of religious conversion, with more people than ever before belonging to a different religious community than their parents.

The No-Nonsense Guide to Religion considers how religion has shaped our culture, and how our culture is shaping religion today.

I recommend this book, not simply as another good book about religion (it is that) but as [a collection of] some fresh thinking about the way forward for religion.
