Writing for those with faith and those without, and especially for young listeners, he encourages curiosity and tolerance, accentuates nuance and mystery and calmly restores a sense of the value of faith.
Ranging far beyond the major world religions of Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism, Holloway also examines where religious belief comes from, the search for meaning throughout history, today's fascinations with Scientology and creationism, religiously motivated violence, hostilities between religious people and secularists and more.
Holloway proves an empathic yet discerning guide to the enduring significance of faith and its power from ancient times to our own.

Really great and informative
A little history of religion presents the history and ideas of most of the larger religions told in a very interesting way. I learned a lot and really enjoyed listening. Thank you for this great audio book. I'll probably hear it more than once.
