New York, NY: Bloomsbury Academic. Despite this knotty definitional problem, which A Beginner’s Guide to the Study of Religion is far from the first to struggle with, Herling should be commended for writing a welcoming book that many students and general readers will find a helpful companion through the early stages of understanding this multifarious thing we call religion.

The strange, familiar thing that is religion calls out for examination in today's world. But how should we interpret it? What are the foundations of a methodical approach to the academic study of religion, and what theoretical tools are available to the beginning student?

A Beginner's Guide to the Study of Religion provides an approachable, comprehensive introduction theory and method in the field. Beginning with a discussion of the pressing need for understanding religion today, this lively, readable text moves on to describe the basic methodological, theoretical operations that students new to the discipline must comprehend and master. Then the book provides an accessible survey of the classic theorists in the modern study of religion, leading up to a concluding account of current, pressing issues in the field.

Almost every course in religion includes theory and method, but time constraints often prevent a full account. A Beginner's Guide is designed to address this issue by offering a thorough but concise body of material suitable for a week (or less) of reading. Beyond the college or university setting, this book is also valuable for anyone interested in the way the academic study of religion makes sense of its rich, challenging subject matter.

It's lit. I bought it for a class and never even opened it but I'm sure if I actually read it it would have been great.

It was a wise book to read if you want to study religion. it was very helpful with my studies and it gives you key points to look for in religions. not very factual, but just nice to have when you want to dive into different studies.

This is an excellent brief introduction to the field under discussion. No new ideas are presented, but a clear statement of ideas is made.
Katius
An outstanding, careful, and accessible introduction to a complex topic. I like to return to this one from time to time to get grounded again.
