For curious readers young and old, a rich and colorful history of religion from humanity's earliest days to our own contentious times
In an era of hardening religious attitudes and explosive religious violence, this book offers a welcome antidote. Richard Holloway retells the entire history of religion--from the dawn of religious belief to the twenty-first century--with deepest respect and a keen commitment to accuracy. Writing for those with faith and those without, and especially for young readers, he encourages curiosity and tolerance, accentuates nuance and mystery, and calmly restores a sense of the value of faith.
Ranging far beyond the major world religions of Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism, Holloway also examines where religious belief comes from, the search for meaning throughout history, today's fascinations with Scientology and creationism, religiously motivated violence, hostilities between religious people and secularists, and more. Holloway proves an empathic yet discerning guide to the enduring significance of faith and its power from ancient times to our own.

inspiring narration
By: Adelia Andani

This book is a good start for those who want to get to know about the history of religion. Holloway delivers a very clear understanding about religion's complex progression by turning a body of data into narration. Eventhough this book is not equipped with details and source of datas, and therefore not suitable for academic references, i think this could be a good start especially in terms of interpreting historical events and getting inspiration from them.
