I bought this book as I felt my overall knowledge of religion was somewhat lacking – trying to find the right book is difficult? I wanted to be better informed but not an expert. So a decent overview is what I was looking for.
This ‘DK’ book is just perfect in my opinion. It is absolutely packed with detail on all of the major religions, starting from ‘tribal’ religions some 3,000 years before Christ, right up to the ‘modern’ religions of the 20th century. Obviously the likes of Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam & Judaism get the most print time but I have learned so much from this excellent book. There are so many interesting facts about the religions from all over the world, their roots, their leaders / Gurus, Gods/ deities etc. that I found the read immensely satisfying.

I cannot commend this book enough. I bought it as a cheap pot shot at something that would summerise and consolidate a far reaching and complex topic.It is very well presented and makes enjoyable reading with thoughtful illustrations and images. Absolutely no bias and attempts to acknowledge past and present accross the world.

A colourful order applied to what can often be an tangled web of complexity.

This is a well-written and informative book covering a range of religions and faith cultures. It is a great supplement to the other books in the series, which we bought for our son's GCSE study.

the entire series of DK books are brilliant and very informative.
the views in this book are laid out in a way that shows all the information and allows you to form your own opinion on what is normally a hard subject to grasp. not only does it explore the main stream religions but the religions that pre date them by thousands of years

I strongly recommend all the books in this series. I bought them all for my teen children and are a frequent reference source. They are equally useful for adult readers, teachers and professors.
