"I think that the authors have done a good job of approaching the dynamics of the varied religions with an appropriate balance of coverage." - Theresa Gilbertson, USF Sarasota-Manatee
"The author’s approach is purely descriptive, which allows me to provide my own interpretation of the material during lecture. I like the historical approach of the text. That provides the text with an orderly structure of the material." - Curtis Smith, Penn State University
"I like the appendix information about writing a Term Paper and a Religious Visit Paper. The Internet Research Guide would also be helpful to students." - Tim Harrison, McKendree University
