Brajesh's Review : DK Eyewitness - Religion
We are big fans of DK Eyewitness books and collect them as souvenirs of our travels. Apart from great pictures and useful information, the books never leave you overwhelmed with information. For DK books, less is more and the pictures do most of the talking.
I browsed through this book at a book-shop and the beautiful pictures with summary narrative, got me interested. Over 70 pages, the book gives a summary insight into all the major religions of the world. It covers Egyptian, Greek and Primal ways of life. Then moves onto Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Confucian Piety, Tao Principles. Shinto Harmony, Sikh Teachings and Zoroastrianism.
Then the three Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam precede the final section on new religious beliefs of Scientology, Hare Krishna, Mormons & Unification Family Church. Each of the major religions are given 6 beautiful spreads and others are given 2 pages. I would recommend this to be a part of your collection, as a good reference book for quick fact-checks and photo reference on Religion. @ 199/- it’s a DK steal.
