From Library Journal:

Thirty-five contributors provide succinct discussions of 12 living faiths, also examining the nature of religion and religion in western societies, among primal people, and in the modern world. The book is distinguished by its large number of illustrations and photographs (more than 240), extensive coverage of Protestant churches and Christian-related movements, inclusion of lesser-known living religions (Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, Jainism, and Baha'i), and concern with new religious movements and primal religions. At times, the largely British background of its editors and contributors is evident, but the volume remains sound and comprehensive. Carolyn Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
