Listener Opinions

    " This densely woven and rich study of the world's religions was deeply moving, educational, and an eye opening account of the universal yet unique ways humans search for meaning and something beyond the here and now of life on earth. Delving into the history of each religion and outlining the basic tenents while focusing on understanding, not judgement, this book is a meaningful and accessible resource to all. "

    " Very interesting & informative book. As an added bonus, it's beautifully illustrated :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marjie | 2/8/2014

    " Loved this book. Explains the core beliefs & brief history of the world's great religions. The author refrained from judgements and minutiae detail, providing just enough of an introduction to peak interest in further study-someday, maybe.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian Halm | 2/7/2014

    " I didn't know what I was in for the first time I read this book. It was a little bit condensed for me, but now I love this very simple book, that explains so much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 2/2/2014

    " Great book all around, and I liked that it focused on the essence of belief of each religion rather than practices associated with them. I will say I felt like it switched gears a bit in the Judaism section and seemed less compelling after that point, but overall I learned quite a bit and really liked the way the topic was presented. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Brown | 1/29/2014

    " This is an absolute must read for anyone who has questions about the origin of certain religions. The pictures are beautiful and quotes are powerful.I saw a consistent theme of love throughout the book.I found it to be very enlightening and would recommend that everyone go on this journey at least once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley | 1/15/2014

    " For anyone looking for a good introduction to world religions, this is the book for you. I originally read this book in college while taking a class in Eastern religions. It is well organized and accessible regardless of previous experiences with religious study. "

    " I think Huston Smith is a very thoughtful scholar. I liked having the illustrations in the book to stop and ponder along with Smith's interpretation of the religious texts and the culture of the people from various backgrounds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kecia | 11/20/2011

    " Actually this is a reread...someone asked me a question about Buddhism and I had to look up the answer. It's a pretty basic and mostly respectful overview of the big religions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Jacquie | 2/22/2011

    " Nice book, very good to start with if you'd like a starter on the major religions but it does leave a lot out if you are looking for a more in depth overview. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 GeekChick | 2/9/2011

    " This is a great and seminal work summarizing the major world religions. Smith provides concise, understandable "cliff notes" on what each religion is all about. This book is widely hailed by scholars. It's a must-have reference for people interested in the study of religions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tristy | 8/29/2010
