If your question is ¿which God?¿ this is a great place to begin. If it weren¿t for this book, I might still be floundering around in search of the truth.

This book gives anyone a basic view into the worldviews that make up the many cultures of the world. This books gives reason to uplift reasonings for a God. If insight is needed, this book is for you.

This is a great book if you are interested in worldviews. Sire starts with a Theistic worldview and traces how it adapted and changed from what it originally was. Sire writes in a fun, interesting and clear manner that anyone would enjoy. Perfect for High School students getting ready for college.
