This is a guide to the best and most interesting of what both the Internet and the world of books has to offer on the subject of religion. “Best” and “religion” are, of course, terms that sit uncomfortably together in the same sentence, so perhaps a word or two about our philosophy in assembling this list is appropriate.
“Best” is defined by us as being most helpful from the viewpoint of increasing one’s knowledge in a given area. “Religion” is defined as any of the world’s religions, past or present, large or small, as well as areas of study related to religion, such as angelology and demonology.
