   schema:description "As the next century approaches, the world's religions will emerge as one of the great geopolitical forces shaping our lives--and understanding these beliefs will be crucial to understanding the world itself. Now The State of Religion Atlas brings together thirty-four provocative full-color maps and graphics that portray the current impact of the major religions and their divisions; the survival of traditional beliefs; the presence of atheism and agnosticism; and the myriad new religious movements. This atlas shows vividly, country by country, how religions spread their influence through means such as broadcasting and missionary work; how they relate to governments, laws, world hunger; and what role they play in wars. The State of Religion Atlas ends by mapping the heartlands of the different religions and the sacred places of the world. For essential background their is also an illustrated table on the fundamental beliefs of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, and Taoism."@en ;
