Synopsis

Birth by Dr Jen Green, Ronne Randall

Each book explores the ceremonies undertaken by different religions and cultures during birth, coming of age, marriage and death. From the historical background of the rite of passage, through to preparing for the ceremony and the celebrations afterwards, all aspects of these important moments in people's lives are investigated. A chart at the back of the book allows the reader to make simple comparisons between the six main religions.
