Is that a Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Wheel?

The DK Illustrated Dictionary of Religions is an excellent visual reference guide to the world's religions, past and present. It provides wonderful images of religious objects, symbols, and figures accompanied by a detailed summary of the history, beliefs, myths, and practices of each religion. This book covers the big monotheistic religions like Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, as well as Hinduism, Buddhism, Confuscism, Native American shamanism, with an entire section on the anicent religions of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and others. This book is fantastic in that even in it's brevity it is able to provide informative and interesting information on a variety of religious subjects and provide at least a cursory familiarity with the multitude of religious beliefs that have flurished over the ages.

great book with wicked illustrations

this is a fantastic book! I'm doing a religious studies course, and this book really helped. With the awesome pictures, it helped to make sense of the confusing words with the pictures and symbols associated with them so it made more sense. It's really easy to read, and is great for anyone who wants to know about the worlds religions.

Excellent resource for parents and children alike

This is a really thorough, well-written book, and it gives a clear summary of just about all the major religions, from ancient Norse mythology to Rastafarianism. As both a Religious Studies student and a library clerk at a children's library, I would recommend this book as one of the best in the field.

Excellent quick reference

Illustrated Dictionary of Religions is a comprehensive, succinct, well illustrated quick reference for the student and layman both.
