    1. Interesting covers a lot of ground and provides snippets of insight along with photographs of many places that deserve deeper study I am not sure how accurately researched the book is take it with a grain of salt, verify elsewhere The one religion I knew quite a lot about was misrepresented not terribly harmful, but a small and relatively unimportant idea to the faithful was presented as a central theme of the faith.


    2. This was a picture book I received for Christmas, and I found my self fascinated by the places on earth that hold wisdom for the ages There were descriptions of 45 places, and I was pleased to know I had visited9 of them After reading this book, I am ready to set out another pilgrimage to sacred sights if Only.
