The teen years are often a time for searching and questioning many of the fundamental aspects of one's culture and society. This traditional questioning of life by teens often includes the aspect of faith--their own and that of others. What would it be like to follow the Hindu faith? How would my life be shaped by this? What are the beliefs of those who follow that tradition? What guidelines would I adopt in my everyday journeying? Carolyn Pogue's comprehensive book covers most of the world's main religions in a way that provides insight to these and many other wonderings in an accessible and captivating way. Carolyn's emphasis is not restricted to describing the unique practices of the various faith traditions included in the book; rather, she goes beyond institutional rites and beliefs to touch on the deeper truths common to humanity. Throughout, there is a strong message of caring for the earth and for each other, a message of connection and social justice. She uses interviews with young people as the basis of many of the chapters--they speak in their own words about their practices and how these influence their lives and world views. Full-color photographs and comments from teens from other cultures allow teens to appreciate how the influences of different faith traditions affect other lives in a relevant way.
