Is Confucianism a religion? If so, why do most Chinese think it isn't? From ancient Confucian temples, to nineteenth-century archives, to the testimony of people interviewed by the author throughout China over a period of more than a decade, this book traces the birth and growth of the idea of Confucianism as a world religion. The book begins at Oxford, in the late nineteenth century, when Friedrich Max Müller and James Legge classified Confucianism as a world religion in the new discourse of "world religions" and the emerging discipline of comparative religion. Anna Sun shows how that decisive moment continues to influence the understanding of Confucianism in the contemporary world, not only in the West but also in China, where the politics of Confucianism has become important to the present regime in a time of transition. Contested histories of Confucianism are vital signs of social and political change. Sun also examines the revival of Confucianism in contemporary China and the social significance of the ritual practice of Confucian temples. While the Chinese government turns to Confucianism to justify its political agenda, Confucian activists have started a movement to turn Confucianism into a religion. Confucianism as a world religion might have begun as a scholarly construction, but are we witnessing its transformation into a social and political reality? With historical analysis, extensive research, and thoughtful reflection, Confucianism as a World Religion will engage all those interested in religion and global politics at the beginning of the Chinese century.

This book was written with the sole purpose of explaining the most popular and important religions of the world. However, there is no one superior religion or belief system in this world. All of the religions that have been developed throughout the ages were based on the cultures and values of the people from those time periods. Their ways of thinking then got passed down to future generations of people through the use of holy books and scriptures. You don't necessarily have to believe in any particular God or religion to adapt a belief system similar to the religions of this book. If you have read through the descriptions of each religion then you will understand that most of them have one thing in common. They are all about teaching people how to act better in their lives by treating others fairly and with kindness. Without some kind of religion or belief system, then people would just wander around thinking they could do whatever they wanted without any consequences. You may think that we have police and laws to control people, but where do you think those laws originated from? Many of our modern day laws come from religious beliefs, like do not kill, do not steal and do not abuse others. We also have many politicians and government leaders who are religious and they create their laws based on the religious teachings they were taught as a child. This is how much impact religion has on our lives, whether you are religious yourself or not. The religions mentioned in this book are the oldest and most popular religions of the modern world.
