Book Description :
This heavenly timeline travels the path of faith through all of mankind’s existence. It covers the classical religions from 3,000 to 800 bce.; the historical religions—such as Christianity, Buddhism, and Confucianism; modern religions that developed during the Renaissance and Reformation; and finally the postmodern era, including fundamentalism and religious backlash. Wide-ranging in its scope, and meticulous about placing every event in its full historical context, it shows hundreds of images of art, artifacts, and architecture; reveals when founding texts were written; and dates central moments in every creed.
