For all who want to understand the religious faiths of their neighbors and coworkers, Winfried Corduan offers an introduction to the religions of the world. His survey covers major and minor religions including Judaism, Islam, Zoroastrianism, African traditional religions, Native American religion, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Baha'i, Chinese popular religion, and Shinto and Japanese religions. Neighboring Faiths emphasizes not just formal religious teachings but also how each religion is practiced in daily life. Dozens of photographs, charts and maps help illustrate how the faiths are lived out in contemporary culture. Moving beyond mere description, Corduan offers specific suggestions for how Christians can avoid giving unnecessary offense to followers of these faiths while engaging them in constructive dialogue. This edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded, with a new chapter on Islam after 9/11 and additional material throughout.

Winfried Corduan (Ph.D., Rice University) is professor emeritus of philosophy and religion at Taylor University, Upland, Indiana. He has led many undergraduate tours focusing on the lived religious traditions of various parts of the world. He is the author of several books, including Handmaid to Theology, Reasonable Faith: Basic Christian Apologetics, Neighboring Faiths and A Tapestry of Faiths.Review:
"A fine summary of what people of other religions believe and practise." (Themelios)
"[E]ncourage[s] empathetic understanding of non-Christian faiths, as well as informed and respectful interreligious dialogue, while firmly embracing a commitment to Christian belief that resists relativistic or homogenizing forms of pluralism." (Christian Scholar's Review)
"Corduan's work has a number of strengths that make it an excellent textbook. First, he lays out the major points of a given religion in a way that is concise and easily readable without being simplistic. . . . Second, the writer repeatedly emphasizes the distinction between an official version of a given religion and its often widely divergent daily practice . . . Third, in a field of academic study frequently compromised by Christian writers, this work is firmly evangelical without being aggressive or polemic. . . . Neighboring Faiths is the finest work on world religions available on the market today." (Bibliotheca Sacra)
"Neighboring Faiths commends itself for use in many contexts. . . . His book builds on his years of classroom teaching on the subject and of leading students on study tours to encounter people's lived religion in various parts of the world. That all bears fruit in this engaging volume." (Missiology)
