If you ever wanted to know the difference, and why there are so many different religions; This book explains a lot!

Nice condensation - you can go to a more comprehensive look at any of the religions in other books but this gives a nice, quick overview. The book is printed on very nice shiny paper.

Potential buyers should be aware that the author of this book writes overviews of 50 religions outside of mainstream Christianity. The author is a Christian who subtly promotes the Christian religion by comparing it to others where members must earn salvation by doing this or not doing that. One would think that the title of the book would include how all the various Christian denominations compare and contrast to each other, but there is no such comparison. The author has pointed out some of the failings and less than admirable behavior of certain leaders of these non-mainstream Christian religions (e.g. Worldwide Church of God) while ignoring the abuses of Catholic priests and the money scams of TV Christian evangelists. If you share the author's religious views, then this book may be for you. If you are looking for an objective overview of all religions (including Christianity), you will have to look elsewhere.

This is a handy reference book. I refer to it often and find myself recommending it to friends. I am surprised how often someone asks questions like, what do Jehovah's witnesses believe? What is Wicca, really? What's a Christian Scientist? etc...I recommend this book whole heartedly.

I give this book one star because I can't give it zero stars. This book outlines 50 major religions, but not Christianity. The book does not discuss Catholicism or any major Protestant denominations. One of the "religions" covered in the book is "Secular Humanism." Clue phone--if it's secular, then it's not a religion! This book should not be tossed lightly aside, but thrown with force.
