In this meticulously researched lexicon of liberal theoretical breadth, Benedict (The Maya Prophecies for 2012) offers objective definitions of world religions and secular belief systems-both historical and contemporary. His bite-sized, multiparagraph entries explain the differing beliefs of branching sects, and, through boldface cross-references, direct readers to separate entries discussing each faith's symbols, figures, and celebration days. Benedict's reasonable secular inclusions, like deconstructionism and Marxism, are surprising and thought-provoking. A stimulating and enjoyable read; highly recommended for religious studies collections.
