This is a comprehensive guide to the diverse religious history of Hawaii. Beginning with the religion of ancient Hawaii, depicting the arrival of the first missionaries, and, religion by religion, covering each faith as it came to Hawaii, the author thoroughly describes the inception and harmonious development of Hawaiian religions. Christianity, Judaism, Japanese and Chinese Buddhism, Shinto, the new religions from Japan (such as Tenrikyo), Baha'ism, and other religions are discussed, their leaders indicated, and their present standing in Hawaii given. Hawaii's Religions fills a gap in the library of Hawaiian literature. As a textbook, as a reference book, or for pleasure reading, it cannot be welcomed by those interested in Hawaiian culture.
