Addressing important issues of the day, this series examines how each of the eight major religions approaches a particular theme. Constructed to be comparative, the books are both authoritative and accessible. Each chapter is followed by a selected bibliography. Individual books are ideal for students at university and A level. As a set they form a complete reference collection.

- Publisher "Considerable work has been done on the European exploration of myth, first in the Renaissance and then in the nineteenth century. This book covers an area that is new territory by looking at ways in which this work can contribute to an understanding of the primacy of myth in religious life." "The authors examine the idea of 'mythistory' - the complex relationship in religions between myth and history - and explore the different ways in which religious storytelling is related to the particular enterprise of storytelling that is called history."--BOOK JACKET.
