Book Description

From the Native American tribal faiths and the Judeo-Christian traditions to Scientology and other nascent religions, man's search for God takes many fascinating forms. In this easy-to-use and comprehensive guide, you'll explore the intriguing dogma and rituals, cultural convictions, and often-checkered backgrounds and histories of the world's religions. This mystical tour of major and minor religions, both ancient and contemporary, includes:
  • How religions deal with the issue of evil
  • Which religions believe in an afterlife--and what you have to do to get there
  • The history and moral foundations of major religions
  • Belief in non-belief and the fundamentals of atheism
  • Special holidays and festivals central to each religion
From Hinduism to Hare Krishna and from evangelicalism to Wicca, this book includes more than fifty religious perspectives and denominations. It's the ultimate guide to exploring the beliefs and traditions of religions around the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine Intro to World Religions March 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book overall does a good job of covering the basic tenets of various world religions, including those not often covered in most "world religions" books such as Wicca, Scientology, and even atheism. I'm very disappointed that the Kindle edition doesn't have a table of contents, considering that it cost me about $8.00; because there's no table of contents, navigating through the book is somewhat of a chore.

Why everyone so fervently wants to kill everyone else!

Oh wait, no I don't. Your fake man in the sky is better than mine? Well then, let's kill each other. That makes complete
sense.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very accurate September 17, 2012
Format:Paperback
If you're going to write a book about religions, you probably should get your facts straight. As a very active member of my LDS faith, I was very disappointed in the untruthfulness in this book. We ARE CHRISTIANS. You certainly do not have your facts clear on our dating recommendations. In fact, I'm laughing at what is said. Don't believe everything you read. If you have a question about religion, I suggest you go to the church. Talk to active members about it. Do your homework. This is inaccurate.
