This was an informative text on what made Zeus so popular with the Greeks. It discussed the origins of his legend and what factors influenced his development. The author also discussed how Zeus influenced Christianity. There was a lot of information I already knew, but the author made me look at the mythology behind Zeus in a different way.
Okay It's okay. Better for those who don't know too much, less so for those with slightly more than general knowledge.

Best part is the list of children.
