Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5�8—For thousands of years, man has sought the answers to questions about where we came from, who created the Earth, and more. The religions of the world have grown from this speculation, incorporating diverse ceremonies and rituals. Religious beliefs have been both a source of comfort and bitter conflict through the ages. This book by Neil Wenborn provides a very basic overview of the origins, development, practices, and beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism, Shinto, Confucianism, and Taoism. Beautiful musical selections which are common to each religion are included. Adrian Grove's narration is clear and melodious. A well-researched, informative look at our world's diverse religions.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Cartersville, GA
