This is a book which brings the world's religions to life, making them relevant and accessible to today's children. The beliefs, history and customs of all the main religions are dealt with individually, while the introductory sections address more general questions such as: why do human beings have religions? what do different religions have in common? what has been their part in human affairs? With its descriptions of many lesser-known religions and sects, glossary, maps and time chart, the book forms an accessible introduction to the subject for children aged 10 and upwards.

Purchased this book for my granddaughter as a gift. She was in third grade at the time and just beginning to ask serious questions about God, religion and the like. This book was a great introduction to religions and other cultures for her. Nicely illustrated; she had no problems with reading the text. We've had some nice conversations on religion and other cultures because of this book. It really does open up the world for a curious young person.

Excellent little book. Just enough information to satisfy some basic questions and allow the child to get an idea about major (and some minor) faiths and their respective beliefs and practices.
Nilador
A comprehensive and well-illustrated book. Although advertized as being suitable for children, this adult learned from it too,
Dishadel
This well-written book ought to be required reading for young people (and adults)growing up in a very religiously diverse world.

I purchased this for my eight year old son. It is a nice overview with great pictures. We have really enjoyed it.
Banal

Book is great! Took a very long time to get here.
I like the pictures of the book and many other things. But unfortunately I can give one star only. On page 34 you read: " Nonconformism: SOME Protestants refused to conform to the established Churches of northern Europe and, in the 17 th century, began to set up Nonconformist Churches. They believed that all links with Catholicisim should be cut, that worship should be kept simple and churches plain, for example without statues"......The author writes: "Some" Protestants..., She don't write any details about the so called bigger group of Protestants and she don't write, that it happened in England only, but she writes North-Europe. I' am sure she is wrong, maybe it's true for England, but it isn't true for (the rest - ha, ha -) North-Europe itself. The protestants in north Europe cut the links with Catholicisim, so there weren't catholic any more. There is a big difference between Catholics and Protestants in Europe, maybe not in England, because the queen tried to unite them again.
And on page 58: ..." NONCONFORMIST GROUPS: Most of the groups listed here grew out of the Protestant, nonconformist movement in Christanity (see page 34). A few groups do not regard themselves as Christians. A few are not considered to be Christians by other groups. The paragraphs on boxes explain some general ideas held by several of the different groups listed". (..And there are listed: ) Baptists, Christian Scientists, Church of Christ, Congregationalists, Holiness Movement, Jehovah's Witnesses, LUTHERANS, Mennonites, Methodists, Mormons, Pentecostalits, Prespeterians, Quakers, Salvation Army, Seventh Day Adventists, Unitarians, UNITED REFORMED CHURCH. ..".
The author writes: "Lutherans: The Lutheran Church is based on the ideas of Martin Luther. It is one of the largest Protestant Churches in the world, and it is the state Church in Germany and most Scandinavian countries". While reading it, you wonder: Why is one of the largest established church in the world since 17 th century nevertheless still a so called "Nonconformist Group" to them. And, the author should know, there is only one Protestant Church in Germany. No one cares if someone tells you to be a Lutheran or "reformiert". Most people even don't know the difference, because today it's not important any more. There is a big protestant church and a big catholic church in Germany (they nearly have the same number of members) and none of them is a "nonconformists group" but they are the 2 established churches. And, there are no state Churches in Germany, that's to simple.The author writes very, very detailed (thank you very much, I like this) but it shouldn't be wrong. I' am not a Presbyterian, but to my knowledge Presbyterians in Europe are also not a nonconformist group since hundreds of years any more, nor the United Reformed Church.They are established churches since centuries and for that reason they should be mentioned on page 34 and not on page 58. Protestants in Germany, Switzerland and Sweden would be shocked, finding Protestants (however they were called in former times) mentioned on the same page with Mormons, Jehowa's Wittnesses, etc. Sorry, I'd like to give more stars, but what else might be tendentious in this book? I don't believe in any gods, you see.. but I like facts.
