    Excellent learning tool

    Everyone should know what the religious timeline is all about. I find it interesting that there were many other religions before Christianity. Why Christians put down so many other religions that were before them, I don't know, but I feel everyone should be educated on how and why certain events in our history took place. Very pleased with this book, all picture are in color and well illustrated, great for school/college studies/research papers.

    I am originally from the North but live in the bible belt with those who I don't think have a real understanding to what their religion or faith really means anymore. (My opinion only - for that statement can reflect anywhere.) This is why I bought this book for my own reading to reference and also as a tool for understanding better instead of hearing negativity from others who really don't know. The more we read the more we understand and learn.

    Thanks B&N.
