Paul Poupard, Le religioni nel mondo. Piccola guida. Casale Monferrato, PIEMME, 1998, 134 p.

Ce petit guide traduit du français est la deuxième édition italienne qui suit celle de 1990. Sans ignorer l'apport fondamental des grands spécialistes des religions comme Georges Dumézil, Mircea Eliade, Rudolf Otto, et après une description exhaustive de l'" homo religiosus " dans toutes ses exigences et ses manifestations spirituelles, l'Auteur nous conduit à travers les diverses religions du monde de tous les temps et de tous les lieux. En partant des religions anciennes, paléolithique, hittite, égyptienne, grecque, romaine etc., en passant par les religions d'Asie, hindouisme, bouddhisme, taoïsme, Afrique et Australie, le lecteur arrive aux trois grands monothéismes : juif, chrétien et islamique, c'est–à–dire la postérité d'Abraham. Dans la conclusion, " Le salut de l'homme et l'avenir de la religion ", le Cardinal Poupard souligne que le sentiment religieux, naguère marginalisé et même refusé, reprend vigueur aujourd'hui. Beaucoup de jeunes retrouvent le goût de la prière à Taizé. Des millions à Czestochowa, à Manille et à Paris, sont autour du Pape, dans un élan de joie et d'espérance.
