Abstract:

In a multi-cultural world with an ever-growing diversity of ethnic and religious belief, the study of comparative religion, worldviews and value systems has never been more relevant. This handbook examines the claims of the world's five major religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity - what they teach, how they view the world, how they differ from one another and, most importantly, challenges the reader to see that these five religions cannot all be true ... Written for Year 10 and 11, the student handbook contains a range of stimulating and thought provoking activities designed to help the student wrestle with the claims of each religion.
