Product Details


“This highly enjoyable study of religion shows how central it was—and is—to our world. . . . [MacGregor] and his publishers must be hoping that Living with the Gods sells as prodigiously as A History of the World in 100 Objects did. It certainly should, as it deserves to. . . . This is one of the most generously illustrated books I have seen at this price in years. . . . Anyone wishing to deepen if not change their life, will certainly benefit from this remarkable book.”
—Douglas Murray, Evening Standard (London)

“It is because MacGregor draws on his knowledge to open new perspectives that Living with the Gods is such a mind-expanding book.”
—John Carey, The Sunday Times
“The writing is clear and personable, and the illustrations nothing short of spectacular—230 images in both color and black and white. A fine popular work on the material history of religion.”
—Ray Olson, Booklist
“A whirlwind, though deeply satisfying, tour of the world’s religions. . . . As good a comparative survey of religion as there is and a pleasure to contemplate.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
