World Religions: A Voyage of Discovery

I have to hand it to St. Mary’s Press, they publish the greatest books on religion. This one not only gives you a comprehensive study on religion, but it also comes with activities that can be used in a classroom. For instance, the question might say “compare Islam to Mormonism” or “think of a time when you expected something to happen, but didn’t, now compare it to the prophecies of the Jehova’s Witnesses.” Read the full review here: Olive Branch United
