This is a balanced guide to religion, which analyses the cultural, social and political implications of religion globally. Religion is a term which is often used in the media and public life without any clarification. However, it is a word that encompasses hundreds of different beliefs. It is a loaded word that has a different meaning for each person. Religion can be seen as a source of war and peace, love and hate, dialogue and narrow-mindedness. Symon Hill's "No-Nonsense Guide to Religion" tries to explain what religion means, how we relate to it, how it was created and how it affects us culturally, politically and spiritually today. Drawing on a wide range of sources, the "No-Nonsense Guide to Religion" does not just concentrate on the popular and well-established traditions, which normally over-emphasize powerful figures. It focuses too on the diversity within religions as well as the similarities between them. The globalization of communications has made more people aware of religious conversion, with more people than ever before belonging to a different religious community from their parents. "The No-Nonsense Guide to Religion" considers how religion has shaped our culture as well as how our culture is shaping religion today.
