    This sounds like a really good book for anyone wanting to get the basics. The fault you found with it (facts stated as universal truth) is a common problem when reading any book on religion: there really aren’t all that many universal truths since each person/sect/group does their own interpretations and brings their own culture into play. Thanks for the review!

      Yup, I agree! As far as religious introduction books go, though, this one was fairly decent in terms of not making too many sweeping generalizations. Usually it was pretty good about keeping things open. 🙂

    This sounds like a good overview, but I might skip it in favor of other works just because I’ve read some of the basics, and showing some things as hard facts when they aren’t would just confuse me as I wouldn’t know the difference!

      Definitely. It’s more of a good overview for someone who needs a place to start.
