This comprehensive work on the religions of China includes chapters on ancient religions, Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, Chinese Islam, Christianity in China, as well as popular religion. It includes up-to-date research on recent archaeological data and many readings. Throughout the book, care is taken to present both the philosophical teachings, as well as the religious practices of the religious traditions, and reflections are offered regarding their present situation and future prospects. The continuity between religion and philosophy is shown through the maxim "Heaven and man are one". Comparisons are offered with other religions, especially Christianity.
