Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The thorough index in the back is a wonderful supplement, as it adds a monthly focus (e.g., February celebrations) and a geographical focus (e.g., England, Ethiopia, Ireland) not found elsewhere in the work. A user-friendly, very interesting supplement to most religious collections, both academic and public." - Booklist
