As it turns out, however, that 11 out of the 19 'different' religions represented in this book are Christian - and 8 of those are protestant. This book, then, in my view is just not useful for a comparative study in religion on the subject of the afterlife. For instance, there are chapters devoted to Baptist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Seventh-Day Adventist, and Methodist denominations.
Different religions? You can't be serious. These are all too similar in their afterlife views and worldview in general to merit their own individual chapters. Meanwhile Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, each receive only one chapter's worth of attention. And this book is simply silent on the religions of China, Japan, Africa, Native America, etc. It doesn't even have a chapter devoted to the Eastern Orthodox Church, and one would think, with its emphasis on Christianity, that it would.
In conclusion, get this book only if you are primarily interested in Christian views of the afterlife, and protestant ones at that. Otherwise, there are much better books out there.
