A complete, flexible and comprehensive print and digital resource package for the NSW Studies of Religion syllabus, this series has been designed to guide students to a greater understanding of the origins, beliefs, texts, ethics, practices and people of the world’s most wide-reaching religions. •

Updates include 2016 census data, new significant people and schools of thought, extended profiles for some current significant people, new contemporary examples of religion in the modern world, and revised language and notes for religious depth studies.

HSC verbs are now highlighted within every question set to help students develop the skills they need to excel at HSC level and ensure they will be fully prepared for success in their final exam.

Activities in each chapter invite students to investigate aspects of religion in greater detail, consider a variety of opinions and alternative perspectives, and undertake further research into areas that are of particular interest.

Video interviews with NSW-based representatives from each of the religious traditions are linked from QR codes included in the Print Textbook and embedded in the Interactive Textbook.
