Summary: This is a reference book for the many different religions of the world, told with both views (Christian and Non.) Each religion is laid out for the reader's easy understanding. There are numerous illustrations to go with the descriptions. A very handy source book for families to have around the house.
This is a beautifully illustrated book that explains all the different world religions. I enjoyed the balanced views on each. This is a big book but is organized well and easy to read. This is pretty much an encyclopedia of all the religions in one BIG book! The descriptions are informative and interesting, which I loved. Like I stated before the book is balanced, which I respected very much. The book does give a Christian response to each religion after each description, which was incredibly interesting and thought provoking.
The book is huge but is very high quality! The pictures are beautiful and the paper is very durable. I can see this book being very helpful for children that need a quick reference for a project or report. This isn't a book you just sit down and read from cover to cover (unless that's your thing!) but it is a handy volume to have on hand.
