This book was an easy read and a very basic "how-to" guide to world religions. It came in handy for my religion 101 class.

This is a very good overview of the world's great religions. I felt it is aimed at Christians, but I suppose that is because that is how I approached it. I think (and hope) it is a good introduction to understanding other religions. I have often thought we are all the same underneath it all, but really, we are not! This surprised me. Fr. Catoir explains some of the nuances that culture brings to a religion, and helps explain the subtle (and not-so-subtle) differences. They are more important than I realized. I found this book highly educational.

The book features several chapters with each explaining a specific religion. They explain the essence and specifics of each religion without bashing into prejudice arguments. It is clearfully and wonderfully written resource handbook for school/home studying :]
