This is probably my favorite religious reference book that I own.

You can quickly get a good grasp on most major religions through Ruth Tucker's work. I consult this book weekly. It seems to have a better layout and access to details than the others.

For anyone who wants to learn a little bit about how other churches started, this is a good book. Each religious belief has its own chapter.

In it, you learn of several of the religions of the world, how they were started and who founded them. A good read.
