    Review quote
    Every once in a long while, a reference work comes along that is certain from the outset to become a well-used standard. "Religions of the Ancient World: A Guide" is such a work, which is unsurprising given that approximately one hundred forty top scholars contributed to the articles inside. Not quite an encyclopedia, not quite a collection of essays, this unique volume is the first comprehensive and comparative reference guide to a wide array of topics in ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern religions.--Frances Flannery "Journal of the American Oriental Society "
