12 Major World Religions Review

on May 2, 2018

Although raised Baptist Christian, I consider myself a spiritual person rather than religious. With that said I am very intrigued with the diversity in culture and religion and have been looking for a book like 12 Major World Religions. Giving an open-minded and neutral approach, it clearly lays out the history, beliefs and traditions of our most popular world religions. I found it very fascinating to compare the similarities and differences as well as better understanding concepts such as jihad and how it’s evolved. One of my favorite sections is part one which covers ancient Egyptian Greek and Nordic beliefs now considered mythology and I thought it a nice prequel to the 12. I also enjoyed the explanations of symbols and timelines the wonderfully illustrate each faith. Overall a great reference.

I received this to gladly review.
