From Booklist:

In this volume in the Life in Ancient Egypt series, Hinds introduces the ancient Egyptians' spiritual beliefs during the New Kingdom period, noting that they didn't think of religion as a concept and had no word to describe it: gods were "too interwoven with every aspect of life to be separated out." Chapters explore primary dieties, temple life and priests; and women's participation in religion, prayer, and holidays; and how religion was incorporated into life's passages, such as birth and death. Hinds supports the smoothly flowing text with illuminating details and excerpts from a variety of sources. Handsome color photos of Egyptian sites and artifacts greatly enhance the text. A final note briefly covers Egyptian dynasties and dates, but a time line would have been welcome. A glossary, a bibliography, and source notes are appended. Gillian Engberg
