At some point I was still hoping I could review these books (even though my review wouldn’t really be of use to the publisher anymore) because it would be still useful to readers, and also to me, because the pile-up was giving me anxiety every time I thought more »

I wanted to know more about other religions, and that includes Christianity. I have to admit that I had a hard time understanding the first half of the book because it felt like the author placed in a whole chunk of information, and left us on our own to more »
