- Full redesign featuring four-color throughout, 63 photos, and 5 maps

- An introductory chapter ("Why Religion?") that explores the origins of religion and some of the basic elements that traditions around the world share

- A concluding chapter ("Current Issues") examining how various traditions are responding to contemporary issues in such areas as politics, bioethics, gender, environment, and interfaith dialogue

- Four new contributors who provide fresh perspectives on Sikh, Jain, Japanese, and Chinese/Korean traditions

- Pedagogical features including "Traditions at a Glance" boxes, "Sites" boxes, recommended websites, and bolded key terms
