Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–What distinguishes Willis's work from the many other guides to world religions? In a word, personality. Alphabetically arranged encyclopedic entries note sources (not pronunciation), and provide cross-references. The volume's wide scope includes Norse myth, Mithraism, ley lines, Kwanzaa, and Merlin; Santeria, Hasidism, and Sufis are mentioned but not indexed. American orientation makes Mormonism's entry five times that of Jainism, Dwight Moody's longer than Mahatma Gandhi's, and John Eliot's longer than both. B.C.E. replaces B.C., but the Western Wall appears as "Wailing Wall," and Judaism's view of the Fall is missing. There is an entry for abortion but none for homosexuality, and spotty coverage of ethno- or primal religions (but sympathetic entries on Gaia, Ghost Dance, and Feminist Theology). Entries on the Benedictines and Ten Commandments are misleading, and the Archbishop of Canterbury should not be called "Reverend Williams." Nevertheless, this is a fascinating book because it is suffused with an individual mind. Entries are intellectually expanded by unexpected quotations and connections challenging readers to think or to smile. Many questions are raised and left open-ended. Willis has a distinctive voice, and a lucid and engagingly immediate style. He is especially enlightening on Buddhism and Hinduism. The occasional black-and-white photos and engravings are adequate, but the book's appeal lies in its lively writing and thoughtful, personal approach.–Patricia D. Lothrop, St. George's School, Newport, RI

Format: Library Binding
If it's a comprehensive, encyclopedic view of key religious figures, prophets, deities and places which is needed, Jim Willis' The Religion Book is the book for you. Nearly 300 entries gather facts to help students and readers understand common religious topics, from Celtic Druids and Native American spirituality to Greek gods, Judaism, and India religions. The Religion Book is recommended as an essential overall library reference.

This can be used both as a foundation for a quiz and a "go-to-sleep"-lecture as you scroll through enormous amounts af information. Like it.
