    Brilliant

    This book is facinating and beautiful, from a artistic but also a religious perspective. A must buy!

    interesting

    This book gives readers and insight to different gods and how they were pictured by certain cultures. It would be best to already have some kind of theological knowledge before reading this book, to get the full effect.

    Great Pictures, Terrible Text

    Having a book full of the images of God from all different viewpoints is really a good idea. However, the text of this book is full of assumptions, inaccuracies and just plain wrong information. The author assumes that the reader is Christian; the author editorializes about the nature of the pictures; the author just gets some things about the history of religion wrong. Again, a great resource for art, but don't pay attention to the text.
