This is the most spectacular book I've read in my entire life. This is not another book about the history of religions. This is the REAL truth about the origins of all religious beliefs, the making of all their foundations of faith and the big lie behind them.

Stunning, shocking, sensational, strange, revealing ... no matter the adjectives I use to describe this book. They all fall short to illustrate the facts documented in this awesome book.

You will need a strong heart and an open mind to understand and digest the stunning revelations described and documented in this book.

This book is a continuation of "A spell on all Their houses" to which I had described as "Probably the best discussion of the world's religions available". This is even better. More information, more shocking facts, more misconceptions, more twisted ideas, enforced truths and maliciously distorted facts. More revelations for many of us, too.

Do you want to know how forged and manipulated are the "facts" that your church makes you believe just "by faith"? Please, discover it by yourselft in this book.

Did you know that there are dozens of "prophets" born on December 25, from a virgin mother, visited by "wise men" at birth? Did you know that all of them were crucified and then resurrected? Did you believe all this time Jesus was the first and the only one? If you want to know the facts, read this book.

Is amazing how through the years we have been fooled by the religious leaders around the world. It is almost unthinkable that very few have had the audacity to doubt what we were taught.

This is best of the best. It makes you want to learn more of this fantasy land called religion. It's short, dense and to the point. Great research material and compelling enough that I did not need a break. Jolie in Mpls

As the book clearly states, you need a very open mind when you read this book. This is a very fact filled book & if you know more about religion than the average person, many truths are revealed as you read backed by historical facts.
It does not put religion down in any way, but gives the reader proof throughout history that some of the things that the churches have taught could be wrong.
Very well written & backed up with with facts that will give the reader with the open mind a new way of thinking about many religions from around the world.

This is one of those books that you may read all of a sudden, hidden trues, forbidden issues and winds of change make it absolutely indispensable for the genuine searchers of light. Bold enough to share, in spite of the consequences, I do encourage everyone to take a close look at it, nothing will continue to be the same.

A Great Read...What Samuel Butler says about religions is so true.I Highly recommend this book! More people have died in vain because of a narrow minded religious view then in all the wars combined.Stop the Insanity! Read this book and enlighten yourself.

Some good information but most of it was gleaned from other books I've read. Text is very disjointed and quite repetitive. It seems the author's objective is to tell the world that he thinks that religion in any form is hocus-pocus. Instead of reading this book simply read Thomas Paine's Age of Reason.

This is the best, most condensed book ever. All the "critical thinking" overrides all other religions. I'm a "secular humanist", and this is the most "rational, skeptical, objective" book.

I'm searching for truth in a very complicated world and of course belief systems may be the most complicated of all. I find myself reading on both sides of the issues of religion and Christianity and still confused... of course. Reading hasn't helped much but it hasn't hurt either!

Beyond All Religion brings out some points and comparisons that are interesting but (there's always a but)- it isn't well written and often repetitive.

Worth a glance- especially if you're not paying much for it- but not a comprehensive study of the subjects nor a great resource.
