Another in the helpful series of charts from Zondervan, this one covering world religions (14 major ones, with their major iterations, and many smaller belief systems), the beliefs of most of humanity are covered within these pages. More widely held or influential religions are given ample room to breathe, and can easily be compared and contrasted to other religions. Delineating major divisions within religions as well as separating points between them, House draws parallels where appropriate but clearly sets the series of charts into Christian perspective. Covering not only modern popular religions but also including ancient Mediterranean beliefs as well as those of modern indigenous peoples, many of the charts are in the form of essays addressing certain aspects of each faith. Also, many illustrative charts show the timelines and historical flow of religious thought over the millennia, giving extensive overviews as well as resources for further study of every topic.
