"Continuum Glossary of Religious Terms" provides a comprehensive glossary of terms from seven major religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. The religions have been chosen to reflect the main faiths that are studied both in school and at university in the English speaking world. The glossary also contains the key specialist terminology used in the study of religion. This is a useful and informative work that should help anyone studying religion up to graduate level but would also provide a fascinating pool of knowledge for anyone interested in religious practice or belief, whether their reasons are to gain qualifications or merely personal pursuit of knowledge. The author has written the glossary after noting the requests of students concerning their worries over the complexities of dealing with unfamiliar concepts in a range of unknown languages. The glossary therefore provides an exhaustive exploration of religious terminology in a way that is accessible but also provides an in-depth understanding of the religious tradition.
