What Do You Believe? Religion and Faith in the World Today

DK. DK, $16.99 (96p) ISBN 978-0-7566-7228-7
Opening with a chronological time line that dates back to 15,000 B.C.E., this extensive guidebook covers the beliefs and history of the world's major religions. Focusing in particular on Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism, the book also explores atheism and agnosticism, indigenous belief systems, East Asian religions, philosophy, and morality. This book doesn't (and can't) have all the answers (spreads address such questions as "What Is God?" and "Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?"), but it has a lot of them, and the graphically bold format—which mixes photographs, cartoons, and sidebars—will keep kids' attention, whether they are seeking truth, knowledge, or more to ponder. Ages 7–up. (Apr.)
