Praise for Judaism

Children's Literature
This is a beautiful, lavishly-illustrated book.


Here is a colorful, non-intimidating series that manages to pluck out some of the more interesting aspects of four of the world's great religions. These inexpensive paperback books have the lavish pictorial interest of coffee-table books...This series is particularly well suited for middle school collections where there is a call for comparing religious traditions, but it could be used in high school and public libraries as well.


Briefly, and with beautifully produced full-color illustrations, these books summarize the essential facts about the world's major religions...In our multicultural society, these essential guides to the major faiths will be most helpful. Even high school students will find them useful introductions.
