Editorial Reviews

Review

"A very rich source to enable students to get a 'taste' of influential traditions."--Mary Anne Foley, University of Scranton

"A very creative, interesting introduction to world religions--a hybrid text."--Gaston Espinosa, Westmont College

"An outstanding anthology and clear expositions."--Allen Howard Podet, Buffalo State College

"An excellent supplementary book for World Religions courses because it quotes primary sources."--Marianne Ferguson, Buffalo State College

"Excellent selection from recent studies of religion from the original texts. Eastman covers a great deal of ground in 500 pages and does it carefully and intelligently."--Dan O'Bryan, Sierra Nevada College

"An excellent survey for use in introductory level courses at the seminary level. It helps to bring students into the world of religion beyond the Judeo-Christian tradition."--Philip Wickari, San Francisco Theological Seminary/Graduate Theological Union

"A thorough, comprehensive book with a variety of presentations to meet different kinds of audiences."--Ralph R. Covell, Denver Seminary

"The Ways of Religion was just what I was looking for. It provides substantial sections of writings (including Scripture) from various traditions without being overwhelming to students. Its inclusion of contemporary writings adds to it relevancy as well."--Joel J. Heim, Carroll College

Praise for the previous edition (first 4 quotes): "In my twenty-five years of teaching world religions this is the first book on the subject that I have liked, with the sole exception of Huston Smith's World Religions. Unlike the latter, this is an anthology and a very excellent one at that. Eastman's book will be a boon to students."--Ramesh Patel, Antioch College

"An excellent mixture of restrained but clear commentary with multiple selections of primary texts from the great traditions of humankind. The sense and sentiment, taste and feel emerge from the stories and sacred texts."--Michael Barnes, University of Dayton

This book has some terrible typos. It is inconsistent between religions presented and lack certain elements that should be included.

I ordered multiple textbooks through Amazon for this term at my local community college. I was very satisfied with the products I received. Though used, they were in great shape and at a great price, overall good value.

Exactly what I wanted in a decent amount of time. Came in good packaging so as not to get damaged in transit.
