Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This series provides succinct and balanced overviews of the religions of the world. Written in an accessible and informative style, and assuming little or no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, each book gives a basic introduction to the faith—its history, beliefs, and practices—and emphasizes modern developments and the role and impact of the religion in today's world.

Chinese Religious Traditions provides a concise introduction to the history of religion in China and its ramifications in China today. Focusing on the four major religious traditions of Confucianism, Daoism, Buddhism, and popular religion, this book covers the religious and ethical ideas as well as the practices within each tradition. The book traces themes that are common to Chinese society from earliest times to the present day. It also highlights the ways in which each tradition has responded to and influenced political and cultural change.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All things considered, this book is hard to beat if you want to learn about religious traditions in China. It is a little dry, but it does a spectacular job of examining the and interpreting the culture. I highly recommend it for any kind of religions of China class as a basic text to use as a base.
