This was a required text for a course in World Religions. Great text, so I can see why the instructor chose it.

This interesting work gives the reader a general overview of the texts associated with various religious beliefs. It presents itself as only a sample, so the reader has to keep this in mind. Some details are minimal (very) concerning the general beliefs of a religion; however, the author's intent is to present their texts, not necessarily a summary for understanding. Outside of that, the selections of scripture and the presentations are adequate. I highly recommend reading footnotes in the chapters as they provide invaluable commentary on difficult or unfamiliar passages in the various scriptures. These commentaries are very well done and present a good opinion in terms easily understood by western students. Overall, this is a good book with a decent style.

I was very pleased with the condition of the product in comparison with its reasonable price. Pages of book very clean, with no markings etc. There could be minor improvements, like including a tracking number with shipment and if possible period of time for delivery could be a little quicker. But overall it was a great buy.
