I have been teaching high school Theology for over fifteen years, and this is the best World Religions text book I've seen. The teacher manual is also awesome.

I have been looking for a resource that explains and compares the basic differences in religions around the world. This book is okay - just okay. It is basically a workbook for school. There is a section or chapter for several of the more prominent religions. Since it was used, I decided not to return but really didn't think it was anything special.

Awesome book for a beginner, it lets you know all the different types of religions out there, when they were dated back, and how they are practiced. I find something new in it every time
