An Introduction to Religious and Theological Studies walks students through topical issues to be encountered in the study of the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as these religions encounter other religions in the context of the wider ecumenism. The text is written from a Christian point of view and aims at helping students understand that to be Christian is to be ecumenical. African Traditional Religions (ATRs) has been included in this survey to provide background for the religious traditions and cultures of peoples of Africa as Christianity moves inexorably southward. The book has been written with undergraduate general education students in mind--including meeting the needs of those in seminaries and theological institutes.""A brilliant, in-depth overview of the main elements that constitute the Jewish-Christian tradition, situated in its historical and ecumenical context. Orji combines thorough, well-documented research with a clear easy-to-follow style. The book serves as a detailed introduction for the beginner, and a comprehensive review for the seasoned professional. This, indeed, is an outstanding text.""--William P. Roberts, Professor Emeritus, University of Dayton ""Prof. Orji has provided the reader with a comprehensive and historical introduction to the theology and religious studies that is centered in the Christian tradition, but integrates this knowledge along side the development of Judaism, Islam, and African religious traditions. The work is ambitiously contemporary with a vital approach given our increasingly pluralistic context.""--John D. Dadosky, Associate Professor, Regis College/University of TorontoCyril Orji is Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Dayton, OH. He is the author of The Catholic University and the Search for Truth (2013).
