A novel, promising approach to understand not just what Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam believe, but what they contribute to three ethical challenges that face all human beings:
ecological devastation, violence, and oppression of women. This is a textbook that will not only instruct; it will engage.

To live in a global society and make sense of world events requires more than a cursory understanding of world religions and the roles they play. This fascinating, in-depth, academic study of the five major religions focuses on each group’s response to some of the most critical social issues of our time: ecology, peace, and women’s rights. The author also highlights individual religious “heroes” and provides links to numerous digital sources for further research, making this a particularly timely and personalized approach to the study of world religions and their far-reaching impact at every level of society.
Brennan R. Hill, Ph.D. is Professor Emeritus and past Chair of Theology at Xavier University. The award-winning author of numerous books and articles, Dr. Hill has travelled the world in his study of world religions.
