I am embarking on an undergraduate course on Religious studies and this introduction has been superb in inducting me to the technical processes. Professor Jones is skilful in content and presentation, as well as engaging.
Would you consider the audio edition of Introduction to the Study of Religion to be better than the print version?
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The lecturer's thinking seems very clear. The lectures are, I thought, well organized. The structure and progression is determined on the one hand by people (e.g., a lecture on one particular thinker) and on the other by approach (e.g., all the lectures about approaching religion from the standpoint of psychology are grouped together).
Have you listened to any of Professor Charles B. Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
The title should make it clear that this is about the (academic) study of religion and NOT about the content or this or that religion, so anyone who wants to learn about this or that religion should look elsewhere. There is a lot about anthropology, sociology, and psychology. I only point this out because there's always a chance that someone will mistakenly think that this course includes much about the content of the various religions, though as I said the title should make it clear that that this is about Religious Studies, not theology.

I enjoyed this multifaceted and interesting introduction to the study of religious philosophy. These lectures held my attention and inspired me to further study of religion from several different disciplines.
