Format: Paperback
The book provided some introductory information on differences between more commonly known religions. I was seeking information on how these beliefs got started, their origin prior to becoming the established, widely accepted 'religious practice.' Hence, this booklet is well suited for individuals who want to learn basic information about religion.
