Even young readers can easily comprehend comparisons of six major world religions. Each title focuses on a single aspect of religion -- articles, books, buildings, and food. Colorful photographs on every page show devotees practicing their faith. Two pages of more detailed text at the end of each book further illuminate the mysteries of Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and Sikhism.
Among the sacred writings described here are the Hindu story of Rama and Sita; the scrolls of the Jewish Torah; the sacred texts of the Buddhists, passed down for generations by monks; the Christian Bible; the Muslim Koran; and the Sikhs' Guru Granth Sahib.
