Understanding World Religions and Beliefs – School Library Connection
The content is easily digestible yet in-depth enough to be both interesting and informative. Teachers can utilize the series to help students understand the religious motivations of characters in assigned fiction readings or important figures from history. Since explication on the topic of religion can be heavily biased, a high-quality series such as this is a welcome addition to any school collection. Highly Recommended.
