                The Story of Religion

                Description: For the five billion people who inhabit the earth, religion is an important part of culture and identity.

Through detailed illustrations and descriptions, Betsy and Giulio Maestro take a historical look at religious--and show that faiths around the world are as diverse as the people who practice them.
