Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 7 Up— Each book covers the religion's history, founders/leaders, gods, worship in the home and temple, pilgrimages, celebrations, and rites of passage. All of them include numerous color photos. There is little to nothing on current political and ethical issues. Most of the changes from the 2001 editions (aside from updated statistics) are cosmetic, involving background colors and fancier fonts (but smaller print). The awkward, clumsy writing has not been improved and, just as in the earlier editions, glossary definitions are vague and highly abbreviated. There are also typos and errors or vague statements. Facts On File's "World Religions" series is the most thorough, useful, readable set available for teens. Gale's "Religions of the World" books lack glossaries and rely too heavily on quotations from outside (and not always appropriate) sources, but are still acceptable. Raintree's "Living Religions" series is informative but repetitious, covers moral issues, and is most similar to Penney's books in format.—Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
