For christianity it gives less then half a page to the aish, quakers, etc. It makes no mention of the different saints or religious relics. It would have been nice if it was a little more detailed.
After a chapter entitled "What is Religion " the raligions are grouped into 5 types-1) primal (basically tribal) 2) monotheistic (single gods) 3) Indian 4)eastern and 5) new religious movements.
There is a section on who is who in religion, an excellent directory and glossary.
Very well written and researched with first class illustrations and maps.
A fascinating book.
