Maps and text present a guide to the historical development and current state of the world's religions.

Blackwell North Amer
Here is a unique view of the world's religions in their geographical and historical contexts. Edited by one of leading historians of religion, the Atlas portrays the origins, historical development, and present state of all major religious traditions - from the first organized religions in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China to the many forms of faith in today's world.
Through the use of some two hundred visually arresting maps, the Atlas provides both a systematic overview of the global development of religions and a more detailed introduction to the religions in various parts of the world.

Oxford University Press
This superbly illustrated and organized reference source is the first comprehensive visual guide to the world's religious traditions. With text by leading experts, and lavishly illustrated with photographs, thematic maps, site reconstructions, and tables and charts, many in full color, the Atlas charts the origin, growth, and spread of all major faiths. A survey of contemporary religious life, its historical background, and a glossary, index, and list of resources enhance the research value of the book.
