I purchased this book for my Kindle and I have been very pleased with the content, to the extent that I am able to read it. I do not recommend that customers purchase this book in Kindle format. Whole paragraphs are unintelligible. It's like sentences were chopped into four or five pieces and the pieces scattered throughout the paragraph. Also, some material is repeated and still scrambled. I highly recommend the book, but I strongly suggest you buy a hard copy.

I love this reference book. Very insightful about many religions out there. Books tells of many of religions origins, history, etc. I really like having this book to refer to. Written from a Christian perspective.

Extremely difficult to look up a word or concept. Thus for example when I tried to find the Germanic god "Wotan," it took me considerable triangulation just to find the words or names starting with W. And when I finally got there, there was no entry for "Wotan"!

Schmidt, one of the author-editors, is an excellent writer and source. While a few years behind their recent edition, an excellent source on about every major religious and philosophical movement on the planet. Check out Schmidt's corpus libre, he is well worth it.

This book helped lead me to do further research and make a life changing decision. Without it, I may have made a very bad decision. However, do to its accurate and thorough information, it led me to do further research about a certain religion and make an informed decision by having all the facts about it. I highly recommend it for learning more about religions, sects, and cults, If nothing else it is a good starting point for further research into the areas covered in the book.
It appears to be a good reference book it but it is difficult to 'navigate'. The table of contents will show "World Religions" but you can't see what individual religions it covers. Very frustrating. I would think the hard copy is better.
