    Experiences of the Sacred: Introductory Readings in Religion provides students with a curated compilation of articles written on the different religious traditions. The articles provide students with valuable insight into the particular worldviews and beliefs of each religion.

    The text provides an overview of seven religious traditions, which are organized into three major categories: Dharmic traditions (Hinduism and Buddhism); Chinese traditions (Confucianism and Daoism); and Abrahamic traditions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). The readings on the religions are introduced by material on the cultures in which they were created, providing students with rich historical and cultural context, followed by overviews, essays, and descriptions of each tradition. Suggestions for further reading and reflection questions throughout the text encourage additional exploration and consideration of the material.

    Providing students with a critical knowledge base of major religious traditions, Experiences of the Sacred is an ideal textbook for foundational courses in world religion.

    Linh Hoang is an associate professor of religious studies at Siena College. He holds a Ph.D. and M.Phil. in theology from Fordham University, and a M.A. and M.Div. in theology from the Catholic Theological Union. Dr. Hoang’s areas of expertise include world religion and globalization.
