World Religions at Your Fingertips is a wonderful reference guide. It is very user-friendly and the explanations are concise and easy to understand. I learned quite a bit from perusing this book! I had never read about Shinto or Zoroastrianism before and it was nice to get a "refresher" about other religions I have studied previously. The authors use point-form and short sentences a lot which makes it very easy to retain the information. I found the book to be quite un-biased and it seemed to reflect each religion fairly. This book would make an excellent addition to any home, public or church library.
