Perfect match

by Michael J C on Oct 12, 2014

This book came in just as I needed it for research. It fulfills what I had expected and it was a perfect match to other research books I had received earlier. Thanks!

Great Book

by nephelim on Jun 24, 2010

This is an interesting book has a lot of good history in it. Anyway I like this kind of book. If anyone is interested in the study of religion this is a good book to add to your library.
