World Religions (Quanta) moves beyond the Judeo-Christian world, providing an overview of 16 religions. You get a good, clear system for accessing the subject matter; icons at the bottom keep “Search” and “Print” in easy reach while icons above them allow a zoom to topics like “God”, “Soul”, and “Women’s Roles”. Icons on the side are tailored to the subject being viewed. All these tools belong in a reference title, but so does depth, and that’s what’s missing here. The writing is plain, accessible, and educational; there are some graphics, but no audio. Treat this as an introduction to the subject; you’ll soon want to move on to something with a lot more meat.
