Synopsis

Christianity by Trevor Barnes

In today's world, where religious divides and cultural differences so often have tragic consequences, a sound understanding of the belief systems and practices of other peoples and cultures is essential. The four books in the World Faiths series: Christianity; Hinduism and Other Eastern Religions; Islam and Judaism, offer a simple and child-friendly introduction to religion around the world. The history and origins of each religion are explained, along with information about their calendar and festivals; places of worship; religious practices and their place in modern society. Religious artwork from through the ages demonstrates how each religion has been practised, and has evolved, throughout history, while dynamic photographs show how modern worship is celebrated today. Solid facts, and text from an expert author, make World Faiths an invaluable resource for religious education.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
