Difficult to understand and tedious but useful if you want to major in religious studies because it leads you to all the sources you need. I both enjoyed and hated reading the book (but that's cause I had to memorize the entire book word for word for my exam)
This was the “textbook” for my intro to Religion class. Only book I used the entire semester. Offers lots of viewpoints and insightful commentary. The book dissects religion by analyzing various thinkers’ definitions and explaintions of religion and comparing them to each other. The set up of the book is defiantly informational, and not narrative. Don’t expect any in stone facts from this book, because it really just explores what religion MIGHT be, and leave everything somewhat subjective at the end of the day.
