Review of 'The Phenomenon of Religion' by Moojan Momen

Book CoverHere are some quotes and notes taken from "The Phenomenon Of Religion: A Thematic Approach" by Moojan Momen (1999). This book is a study of world religions, separated into three large chapters on religious experience, religious concepts and religions' place in society. With as much historical and comparative information you can shake a stick at, this is an encyclopaedia of knowledge.

The author betrays his own affiliation with the Bahá'í Faith by making the best and most forward-looking comments about this relatively new and small religion, and frequently concludes arguments with a brief comment as to how the Bahá'í Faith avoids whatever problem he was showing that religion has had historically.
