World Religions A to Z
While I have been busy with instruction and other reference duties, one of my colleagues, in anticipation of a class at the seminary, has purchased a variety of reference books related to world religions.
These include the A to Z Guides from Scarecrow Press.

Another series is the Historical Dictionaries or Religions, Philosophies, and Movements also from Scarecrow Press.
