This series of books explores what it means to live and worship among the many faiths unique to America's neighborhoods. Each book in the series illuminates the questions Christians have about other faiths such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Baha'i, Zoroastrianism, Afro-Caribbean religions, Native-American religions, Confucianism, and Shinto. Different faiths have different ideals of community, and different kinds of rules.

Here is a book to help Christians understand the complex attitudes toward illness and death among the many faiths of their neighbors. Mosher lets us listen in as nurses, physicians, chaplains, religious leaders, and laypersons wrestle with questions such as: Why are we here and what is our destiny? What causes illness? What happens when we die, and what should happen to the body of the deceased? How does our religion help us handle the grieving process? And how does our religion help us make decisions about medical treatment options? Like all books in this series, it is intended for interfaith education in both parish and classroom. This title includes quick guides to various religions, glossary, recommended reading list. 156995 Lucinda Mosher
