“One can learn about the mode of dress or dietary practices of Roman Catholics in Portugal or discover what is considered sacred to someone of the Eastern Orthodox religion. This encyclopedia, which offers over 500 illustrations, will be useful to anyone wanting to learn more about the major religions of the world.”

“This ambitious endeavor attempts nothing less than to survey religion in every country in the world, from the large to the small . . . Without a doubt, university libraries should consider adding this to their reference collections, for it would be immensely useful to anyone interested in religion, scholars as well as students.”
