Summary
    Life of Meaning Anthology: Introductory Readings in Religion invites students to consider an array of existential queries that also serve as core questions for conversations on world religious traditions. Readers evaluate questions of meaning, faith, and vocation through enduring religious and philosophical texts.

    Part I encourages readers to consider big questions of life: What is most important? What does it mean to be human? Is there more to life than meets the eye? What obligation do I have to others and to the world? Part II introduces students to the study of religion and presents religion as a source of truth-claims. In additional parts, students explore seminal texts and perspectives within the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism. The final section of the anthology addresses contemporary issues of religion, including interreligious dialogue, religion and science, the effects of internet on religion, and religion and the environment.

    Inviting students to consider spirituality and their understanding of the world and their place in it, Life of Meaning Anthology is ideal for introductory courses in religious studies.
