Summary

In continuous print since 1969, Earhart's classic text explores religion in Japan as a complex tapestry of different religious strands, reflecting both the unity and diversity of Japanese culture. Tracing the development of religious traditions from the prehistoric era through modern times, Earhart explores the vital influence of Shinto, Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, and folk religion, drawing on cutting-edge scholarship and contemporary religious practices. Presuming no technical or academic background, the text helps students identify key Japanese religious themes, which include the proximity of humans and gods, the religious character of the family, the bond between religion and the nation, and the pervasiveness of religion in everyday life.
