The Religions Next Door: What we need to know about Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam - and what reporters are missing will educate readers as to the truth about world religions that the media often misrepresent. Our neighborhoods are full of religious diversity these days, but the media would have us believe they all hold different variations of the same tenets. But this isn't so, and it is in those missed details that serious and grave misjustice is done to the American people by the misreporting of religion.The Religions Next Door provides insight into the beliefs of four growing religions in America, and challenges the media community to report religion as real news - not as community relations fodder, but as stories of human and theological interest.
