An academic book. Used during my studying days. Good though.
Though this is a class textbook, it's delivery of history and different interpretations is surprisingly evenhanded. It's refreshing to learn about religion without feeling pressured to convert or having facts twisted with fanatical dogma. Though I wouldn't go so far as to say this book is entertaining, in small doses it's interesting. A great resource to keep in the library.
I actually read (and own) the earlier version of this book. Very good and used it for reference while teaching "world religions" to my Sunday school class.
Great Introduction to different religions
