  • Runs a good line between having enough information to be informative but not so much as to make things overly complicated.


  • A very good quick reference guide to the world s religions However, it does gloss over the less popular religions with barely a mention.


  • It was a really good comparison of the major religions I just wish I would have had pictures, and pictures in color, especially for descriptions of things like religious symbols and clothing.


  • It was interesting and if you are curious about the different beliefs of the world s major religons it does a great job of explaining things


  • Boring and repetitive in the extreme There are far better books available on this subject I am very glad that I borrowed this copy instead of buying one myself.



  • Good reference book for getting quick answers about various religions around the world However, not a detailed look at religion but very handy to have around.
