A writer, editor, and owner of a bookstore specializing in Eastern and Western religions, Flower has added another book to the plethora of materials summarizing the great religions of the world. The book is separated into four broad groupings, such as "Monotheism" (containing Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Baha'i, and Zoroastrianism) and the "Religious Legacy of India" (containing Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism). There is nothing particularly bad about this work; however, there is nothing particularly exceptional, unusual, or outstanding about it either. It is the usual dry summary of the basic elements of these faiths with the facts following facts. This book is not comprehensive enough to be used as a college textbook nor is it accessible enough in presentation, manner, or tone to be an introduction to the uninitiated. Its best use would be to a scholar fairly well familiar with a few world religions who wants detailed descriptions of other religions. Marginally recommended for large public libraries.?Glenn Masuchika, Chaminade Univ. Lib., Honolulu
