From the Meeting Religious Groups series – an introduction to some major religious groups through a visit to a place of worship typical of each.
Meeting people and asking questions is an interesting way of learning. Meeting people in religious groups and communities is an excellent way of finding out what they believe and why they behave as they do. In Britain there is a church, temple or some kind of religious building within easy reach of everybody's school and home. This book describes an Anglican church and tells you about the people who worship there. When you have read it you can go and find out about the religious buildings and communities that are nearest to you and begin to think about the similarities and differences.
