(Instant Expert Series)
by Joanne O'Brien & Sandra Palmer
OK this little book will in no way make you an "instant expert" - it's much too short for that and the world religions are much too complex to be covered expertly in 111 pages of clear bold print. However this book will give you a good overview and briefing on the basic tenets, structures and ideas of the 11 world religions covered within it. It's simple in its language and wide in its outlook of being a helpful reference guide for this multi-cultural and multi- faithed world we live in - and on that level this book works quite well. As a starter for looking at world religions, either to gain a slight understanding of your neighbours' faith, or for a basic student's look on world religions this is a great and well priced book that would be handy to have.
