The Oxford Dictionary for World Religions seems to have a true reflection of historical information and a helpful reflection of some of the terms within various religions. For a general sense of many terms it is adequate.

The Oxford Dictionary for World Religions seems to have a true reflection of historical information and a helpful reflection of some of the terms within various religions. However, if one wants information specific toward a religion it is always best to get something printed by that particular religious group.

This dictionary contains most of the terms that are related to Sikhism. Although not really an introductory course, by reading the definitions of so many words in the Sikh vocabulary, one gets an idea of what the religion is all about, including its relation to Islam and Hinduism, the two related faiths of India. The book lists the major figures in Sikhism, an outline of the history of the religion, a list of the sacred books, theology and a general overview of the philosophy, both in the introduction and in the definitions itself. A great aid for those interested in the faith.

It contains over 8,200 entries by leading authorities in the field of religious studies containing a topic index of 13,000 headings. There are over 80 contributors from 13 countries. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of World Religions is an abbreviated version of the work which appeared in the year 2000.
