Each chapter of this book details individual religions. The author not only draws upon his own knowledge but also fellow Theologians. Written in an easily understood manner, this author manages at times to display his obviously humerous nature, whilst presenting extremely informative information. The contents do not only explain the need for ritual within certain cultures, but the reasons why they exist. Such a detailed piece of work can only lead to a much greater tollerance by all of world religions.
