Whether you wish to note the key differences between Catholicism and Protestantism, understand why Hinduism has so many gods, or have a basic grasp of Buddhist philosophy, this chunky volume offers brisk overviews of the key beliefs, deities, origins, and iconography of the world's major belief systems. This guide covers various aspects of the Judeo-Christian faiths and Eastern philosophies, but also the less common (and often misunderstood) religions of Zoroastrianism, Rastafarianism, cargo cults, and the Native American church.
