Whether you are Catholic, Jewish, Muslim or Aetheist, this book has something for you. "A comprehensive Dictionary of the Gods" briefly and poignantly presents a brief look at hundreds of gods and demi-gods from the various ages and regions of the world. Best yet, the gods, and all the eccentricities are presented with easy-going humor that makes the books easy reading and a useful reference. The only criticism that I can offer is that I would have liked to see a detailed bibliography of Ms. Baumgartner's source materials. This would make it a more useful rference tool for those doing research on particular gods or legends. This book was originally published in 1984 as "Ye Gods."
