While none of the entries are terribly extensive, this is an interesting little reference book showing just how many ways humans have attempted to come to terms with their universe.
Terra Bosart
This is an excellent resource for the obscure references I encounter during research projects. When I read a document that expects me to be familiar with deities I have never heard of, the Encyclopedia of Gods has come through for me more often than not.
Patricia Della-Piana
This is a go-to book of information not findable anyplace else. He did his homework, and now I can do mine.
Aaron Meyer
A useful dictionary of gods from throughout the world. Not a complete listing but good enough for a reference.

Recommends it for: Religion seekers
This book is helpful, especially for people who are trying to understand more than one religion. I use this book as a compass on finding out all I can about the gods and goddesses.
Many interesting little facts. More a reference book than anything else.
as reference, used often, especially when Lara names her doggesses.
Invaluable reference
