Review:

This is not a book that looks at Religions, it is much more important than that, as it is a book that looks at how to study religion—any religion.

It takes a detailed and comprehensive look at the different methodology and key points involved in studying religion. For instance considering the underlying anthroloplogical structure of a religion, the statistical analysis—what, why, how, key figures in the study of religion.

It's a great starters guide for anyone approaching any serious academic study of religion, and it is is British based so on key and relevant to British universities and contexts.
