2.0 out of 5 stars 5-star pictures and 1-star text, March 20 1999
Ce commentaire est de: World Religions (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully produced book with magnificent colored pictures. In many ways, I think it would be better without the text. The history, basic beliefs, and traditions of each religion are not presented in a concise or coherent manner. I would be unable to give anyone a succinct summary of any of the religions discussed by relying on this book alone. None of the subject religions seem to be treated seriously, and they all come off as a bit silly. Perhaps the silliness of organized religion can't be hidden behind words, but other books have done a better job of obfuscating that fact.
