This directory to the primary religious literature of past and present cultures includes references to available editions, translations, and commentaries. 
"This is a concise directory to a wide variety of religious texts. More than 120 entries delineate important works of religious literature of yesterday and today. Bibliographical references to available editions, translations, and commentaries along with a glossary and indexes make this a comprehensive, accessible guidebook. Unfortunately, pronunciation is not given for names and terms, which may be a disadvantage for the lay reader. This should be a useful addition to the religious/philosophy collections of most libraries."
