Whether or not you are a religious person, it’s important to have a basic understanding of world religions. I’m willing to bet that any newspaper on any day will have a story that relates in some way to religion, because while religion is a powerful motivator, it’s also a tremendous source of violence and tension. World religions influence politics and laws, and shape our identities. Billions of people around the world belong to one faith or another, so it’s imperative to learn why and what they believe.
Here are two new titles that immediately caught my eye:
The Jew is not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths that Fuel Muslim Anti-Semitism, by Tarek Fatah
Hipster Christianity: When Church and Cool Collide, by Brett Mccracken
