Religions in focus; new approaches to tradition and contemporary practices.


Religions in focus; new approaches to tradition and contemporary practices.

Ed. by Graham Harvey.

Equinox Publishing Limited


366 pages




The focus here is what people do when they engage in something scholars of religion call religion, emphasizing daily activities of ordinary people in different traditions around the world rather than the formal practices of religious leaders. The contributors are presumably scholars of religion, perhaps specializing in specific religions, though only their names and academic affiliation are identified. Among the topics are Sikhs, shamans and animists, practitioners of indigenous religions in Africa and the African diaspora, pagans, new religious concerns of Koreans, Indigenous religionists in North America, Christians, and Baha'is. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
