"a broad cultural collection of stoies, from the majority of major religions spaning the globe. Stories of creation from the aboriginal australian, native americans, and other major cultural and religious ideals. There are stories of the major profits and the key figures in the major religions. THis is a good resource for Religious Education teachers, and cross cultural exposition of many diverse cultures. the back of the book lists the major religions their founders, and founding dates, and their major ideals. It also explains the names and terms used with in the religions.

"I read this as background on a little project I'm working on, as a way to see how religious stories can be presented in a straightforward, nonreligious manner. This is a really well done collection, with a nice, neutral voice throughout. There are occasional intros worked directly into the stories ("The story of Christmas is an important one in the Christian faith..." [paraphrased]) and they are helpful. I found myself wishing for slightly more background, either worked into the stories like in my example or in a more significant "Fact Files" at the end, but overall this was really impressive. It is set up to provide subtle comparisons and it succeeds. (The story of Jesus' birth as told in the Koran vs. the Bible is particularly interesting.) This would be a great addition to a homeschooling library, providing lots of material for studies in world religions, diversity, world culture and history, and critical thinking." said.
