I'm a bit of a religion nerd, so I might be biased. But I thought Nigosian did a good job of keeping a fresh, interesting, and precise look at the world's religions.

However, adherents to specific religions should realize that this text is completely secular, and might be lacking the spiritual detail that you're accustomed to.
