Book News Annotation:

An abundantly and beautifully illustrated oversize reference (10.5x14") which examines each of the major faiths--Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Islam--through its sacred texts, epic imagery, key beliefs, and religious artifacts. Each religion's main principles and thoughts are discussed along with the symbolism and meaning in religious imagery and iconography. Bowker's credentials include, among other things, professorships of religious studies at North Carolina State U. and Gresham College, London.
