What are the differences between Sunni and Shi'a, Catholic and Protestant, Buddhism and Confucianism? Who were Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, and what did they really preach? Why are the concepts of karma, jihad, and nirvana so important? And what do the religions of the world say about life, death, and how we should act?

Answering these and many other critical questions, this book explains the histories, key texts, prophets, and essential teachings of the ancient and modern religions and their offshoots, including:

Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Greek, Roman, and Norse mythologies, indigenous traditional religions, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Daoism, Confucianism, Shinto, Catholicism, Protestantism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Methodists, Puritans, Mormonism, Sufism, Hasidism, Scientology, Baha'I, new pagans, and many more, as well as considering their common themes and the future of religion.

Clear, concise, and with 200 iconic images, Religion in Minutes is the fastest, fullest way to understand the beliefs that shape the world around us.
Marcus Weeks is the author of the hugely successful Philosophy in Minutes, Psychology in Minutes, and Politics in Minutes. He has written numerous other books and contributed to reference works such as The Philosophy Book, the Millennium Encyclopedia, and the Definitive Visual Guide series.
