    Follow up references cited in the chapter notes on specific topics. Not all survey texts offer sufficiently concrete descriptions of different practices to enable clear identification of what way or ways of being religious are being discussed. The following are suitable for this task.

    Catherine L. Albanese, America: Religions and Religion, 2nd ed. (Belmont, CA: Wadsworth, 1992).

    Theodore M. Ludwig, Tbe Sacred Paths: Understanding the Religions ofthe World, 2nd ed. (New York: Macmillan, 1994).

    David S. Noss and John B. Noss, A History of the Worlds Religions, 8th ed. (New York: Macmillan, 1990).

    Ninian Smart, Tbe Religious Experience ofMankind, 3rd ed. (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1984).

    On specific religions, the Prentice-Hall series on World Religions, edited by Robert S. Ellwood, and the HarperSanFrancisco Religious Traditions of the World series, edited by H. Byron Earhart, are quite useful for the task as well.
