I am a Theology student and believe me this is a good source to be recommended for other students studying religion. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more than the basics about a religion.

Bought it for a class I had to take in college. It's an introductory-level textbook that's easy to read and understand.

The book I got was used and the description said that it was 'like new'. It definitely was not like 'like new'. It had pages bent and there was even a spot on the front of the book because it was dirty. Very disappointed.
