    1. I originally got this as a textbook for a world religions class in college and I remember enjoying it at the time After skimming through it again, however, I realize that I most likely attributed my enjoyment of the class to this book I did read this in conjunction with several other texts, which I still peruse Taking a second look, I realize that the author s explanations of each religion are seriously lacking, not to mention poorly written While it is certainly beneficial to read a variety of [...]

    2. As an excellent one volume anthology survey of numerous world religions holy scriptures, Van Voorst does an excellent job editing, compiling, and highlighting the importance of each world religion s scriptures Moreover, he also offers the history, significance, cultural impact, and contemporary use of each religion s scripture respectively Not only that, but this book contains primary sources of the aforementioned scriptures, which makes this text a great resource for referencing any religious s [...]

    3. This book is great for one to beome emersed in the insight of various cultural religious doctrines and traditions of the world I must say that I read this as a college requirement with Huston Smiths The World s Religions, and I throughouly enjoyed it like my own choice of reading What this book did for me is compliment Huston Smith by providing the backbone of the worlds religious doctrines Huston provided the heart of the religions, and Voorst backed it up with the books and cultural practices [...]

    4. I purchased this book for a college class, but found myself drawn to it when I was done with the class I had some difficulty reading it, but I blame that on my lack of education going into it It was, however, a wonderful resource for my World Religion class.

    5. A little stale in the descriptions of each religion At the same time, a nice compilation of important passages in the World s holy scriptures I would recommend Huston Smith s The World s Religions over this book.

    6. This is a great book for quick reference It covers major religions of man by citing primary texts and giving brief interpretations A perhaps better read is Huston Smith s World s Religions ISBN 0062508113

    7. This book offers some scripture and explanation, but it is questionable as to whether the scriptures offered provide a balanced look at various world religions.
