Editorial Reviews

Review

"This text concentrates on the two most important aspects for understanding religion from an academic standpoint -- historical development and worldview analysis."

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.
