Believers and Beliefs

Gayle Colquitt White, Author Berkley Publishing Group $12 (240p) ISBN 978-0-425-16002-2
In an increasingly diverse America, a guide to religious etiquette for business and social occasions such as White here provides is increasingly useful. Whether your business associate or friend is Baha'i or Quaker, Atlanta Journal-Constitution religion writer White's little guidebook will help you maintain good will and avoid serious faux pas. White devotes a chapter to each of the major faith traditions in America, and she explores the many subtleties among the faiths regarding such matters as dress restrictions, holidays, Sabbath observances and dietary laws. In addition, each chapter provides additional references for further reading. Each chapter contains discussions of areas where political and religious beliefs intersect, and White also provides references to the sacred texts of each faith. Because of its clear format, its thorough coverage of the practices and beliefs of various religions and its breezy tone, White's book is a valuable pocket guide or desk reference for business professionals.
