I read this while traveling as a way to learn about various religions in the world and to introspect about their place in my life. As I hoped, Mr. Sadlier does a solid job articulating a sense of context and values system for many, many spiritual systems. That said, it felt overly exhaustive for what I was looking for, with many, many fringe spiritual systems included at the expense of a bit more depth on some of the more popular ones.

This book is a reference book for all religions and belief system of the world, with reference to the books written in english translation (by Western people mostly) And also it give reference to address and contact number for western people. It also have online web references. You can use this book as a reference to find your interesting belief system.
