Much as I’d like to just leave my review to one word, fascinating, I don’t think that would be sufficient.
So, this book left me feeling just a bit uneducated as I know practically nothing about all but one of the religions discussed but I did find it curious, as obviously the author has, that all three would have such similar ideas at approximately the same time. The progression of each religion based on their geographical area and societal influences as well as their ultimate conclusions, which while laudable don’t seem to have been followed very well through the centuries, made for some thought provoking reading.
While the conclusions of the book came across to me as simplistic to the point of being boiled down to ‘be nice’, the lead up to that and all the historical elements were very well presented.
