Review quote

Publishers Weekly Readers will glean much information about the history, current practice and occasional controversy surrounding the religions. Extensive glossaries and indexes offer help for quick-reference. VOYA Here is a colorful, non-intimidating series that manages to pluck out some of the more interesting aspects of four of the world's great religions. These inexpensive paperback books have the lavish pictorial interest of coffee-table books.  This series is particularly well suited for middle school collections where there is a call for comparing religious traditions, but it could be used in high school and public libraries as well. KLIATT Briefly, and with beautifully produced full-color illustrations, these books summarize the essential facts about the world's major religions.  show more
