For each religion, a short text on each double-page spread (on a subtopic such as the Crucifixion) is married to a wide variety of cropped photos of objects or art; each object has an often substantial caption explaining its importance in the religion's rituals or beliefs. The spreads are crowded and the format choppy, but the images are arresting and the books are inviting for casual readers. Ind.
