A New Text for Comparative Religion Courses from Stephen Prothero

GOD IS NOT ONE by Stephen ProtheroIn God Is Not One, Stephen Prothero, chair of the religion department at Boston University and author of the bestselling Religious Literacy, provides a concise guide to the world's great religions as he makes a fresh and provocative argument that, contrary to popular understanding, all religions are not simply different paths to the same end. Here is a new context for the study of religion in the 21st century that disproves the assumptions most students make about the way the major religions work.

“By giving us the best compact guide to world religions in years, Stephen Prothero has done an estimable public service in addressing religious illiteracy. With his usual combination of wit, insight, and breezy prose, he shows us that comparative religion can be both important and fun. His core point—that religions are diverse and plural, not necessarily mystical expressions of the same inner truth—is bracing and relevant. God Is Not One is the ideal jumping-off point for anyone who wants a single book that captures the core ideals and values of the leading religious traditions.”
—Noah Feldman, Bemis Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, and author of The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State
