Examining such fundamental questions as what is religion, how is it studied, and how is it formed, Introduction to Religious Studies opens the door to the vast and fascinating world of religious studies. Scholars from a range of specialties and interests contributed chapters that explore religion from a variety of emphases, including origin stories, sacred words, "truth" claims, aesthetics, morality and ethics, violence, social activism, the environment, asceticism and mysticism, technology, science, and ritual.

Bought for a college course and it really helps develop tools needed to become an academic student of religion. I would recommend it.

Karma is a continuous journey where our actions and their ends in the past, present, and future determine our life's circumstance. By doing good, say, volunteering at a hospital shows our giving nature. The action is there for everyone to witness and even partake in by setting an example. This type of good example is then drawn to a map of a person's destiny. I believe a person's fate is fixed and our ends in life are predetermined. This can be exhibited with Jesus Christ's God given objective to die on the cross. Fate can be exhibited by the rise and fall of the Church. Fate can be witnessed in the afterlife as soul's go to purgatory or enter the kingdom of heaven, though there is not really any experiential testimony in the physical world that suggests this. Science is younger than faith. We can continue to do good such as the case with volunteering for a hospital to seek out what good God has in store for us.

Karma relates to Christianity because when a person hunts with all his heart and treats others the way that person would like to be treated, and does on to others that that person would like done on to him, it shapes the world the way God would like it to be. Life circumstances are molded for people by the Creator God in to what has been written on God's stone for people. However, if a person's attitude and belief in these commands rapidly changes and goes back and forth from loving to not loving behavior towards others, it will seem like chaos where bad things can happen. For example, a person can stab another with a knife, get arrested and go to prison. But upon getting out goes back to his good paying job which he could have been working at the whole time he was in prison. Circumstance can change, but in being circumstance is linear.
