Religion in 5 Minutes

Volumes in the Religion in 5 Minutes book series are each an opportunity for novice readers to benefit from the expertise of scholars, all addressing common questions about everything from Hinduism and Buddhism to Paganism and Indigenous religion. Students and general readers will find here questions that they might ask – What is the oldest religion? Do all religions have scriptures? – all answered in a readable manner. Because each chapter can be read in about five minutes, the books offer ideal supplementary resources in classrooms or an engaging read for those curious about the world around them. And, sooner or later, the assumptions entailed in the questions themselves take center stage for the contributors. With recommended readings in each chapter, the Religion in 5 Minutes book series meets readers where they are and invites them to entertain just how fascinating the world might be.
