Too much on the Abrahamic religions and not enough on the others Plus nothing or almost nothing on pagan religions Also too many pictures instead of real information A very broad view of the most nown world religions It does not go into much detail A 25 Stars just because it is a good compilation of the most influential world s organized beliefs systems Great book A thorough history of religions from ancient Egyptian Greek Norse Buddhism and on down the line of Abrahamic Very informative and especially liked the illustrations of symbols and their meanings I was really not impressed by this book It throws out a bunch of facts without mentioning their relative importances and in fact puts in things that are not important at all and leaves out important parts of religions This is mainly true of Eastern religions the western ones are not so poorly. A refreshing approach to understanding different faiths Detailed annotations to stunning illustrations provide intriguing insights into the world's most important religions offering a deeper appreciation of the beliefs central to each World Religions looks at the beliefs and practices of many different religions from the ancient.

Described But I m going to describe Christianity the way the book describes Hinduism Christianity has a holy trinity of gods the Holy Spirit God and Jesus Jesus was believed to have walked on water and revive the dead Mary his mother was a virgin Many christians eat bread and drink wine to symbolize eating JesusAs you can see that description tells you some facts while telling you nothing about what Christianity really is Additionally the book is made up mostly of the Christian and Jewish religions With those taking up about 60% and then all other religions taking up the rest I now nothing about ester religions and was reading the book to learn about them Oversized book made even cumbersome by having many of the pages the long way spread across both pages okay explanation of the major religions This book covers the major religions of the world su. Egyptians through to Zoroastrianism the oldest living religion and the great faiths practiced today Each of the major faiths Christianity Judaism Hinduism Buddhism Jainism Sikhism and Islam is examined in detail through its sacred texts epic imagery ey beliefs and religious artifactsThe distinctive identities of different fait.
