This great series, new in paperback, introduces the wide variety of customs and traditions that feature in people's lives around the world. Each book describes the activities, beliefs and festivals that mark life events, seasons or other special times in cultures, ranging from the Far East to Europe. "Prophets and Gods" looks at how religious beliefs have developed since the beginning of time. Read about and compare the different deities of some of the world's main faiths, from the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, who believe in one supreme God, to the followers of other religions, such as those in China and Japan, who worship spirits, prophets and many different gods.
