Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
This engaging series is the first to offer young adults a concise, completely current, and very readable survey of the world's great religions. Each volume describes where a particular religion is practiced, its central beliefs and rituals, its contributions to world civilizations, and an analysis of how it has spread through immigration and conversion.<p>This volume examines the basic tenets of Shinto, its evolution in response to other religious influences, and the ways in which this durable traditional form of religious expression has adapted to modern Japanese life.
