Overview


 This book, cosponsored by the SLOC Interfaith Roundtable, introduces the remarkable and diverse world of faith to a new generation. It is meant to be a glimpse, a taste, an awakening. Each page opens with a story that tells about the origins of a particular religion or denomination. The author talks about founding events in a simplified way, using the language of the religion/church under consideration. In discussing current practices, the focus is on infancy, coming of age, worship, and marriage rituals. Each page has been read by scholars and clerics from each religion to guarantee both accuracy and tone.

The illustrator has chosen images that are representative of the rich heritage associated with each religion. She emphasizes scenes that include children at church, which illustrate differences and similarities in the way the world worships.

The book is praised by former U. S. president Jimmy Carter who writes that the “concise, descriptive text and beautiful illustrations” make the book an “informative and entertaining resource for children and adults.” He is joined in his sentiment by Joan Campbell Brown, general secretary of the National Council of the Churches in Christ in America (“an attractive, sensitively written book”), and Charles C. Haynes, senior scholar, the Freedom Forum First Amendment Center (“a book that simply and accurately introduces children to the world’s religions” that is “lively and beautiful”).

Introduces the origins and traditions of twenty-eight religious groups, including the Amish, Baptists, and Buddhists.
