Product description

Review

Even Chamberlain would admit there's a lot more about Chinese folk religion, more than Chinese Gods (or even several books) could cover. But most readers will finish this book knowing substantially more than when they started it. -- Cairns Media Magazine, Jan 2009

The book is a fascinating collection of all major gods, and a great resource for any historical or religious bookshelf. -- HK Magazine, Feb 2009

For the uncountable numbers of overseas visitors who visit Chinese temples and puzzle over the carvings of fierce and gentle deities, or for those who wonder just who is being venerated in the small shrine at the back of a Chinese restaurant, this is a little gem of a book. -- China.org.cn, March 4, 2009
