Short Introduction to Religion, by Gordon Kerr

13 December 2019

A WRITER of “short histories”, Gordon Kerr, in his Short Introduc­tion to Religion (Oldcastle Books, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-85730-170-3), in 17 chapters applies a broad brush to each reli­gion separately: many quali­fications could be made to state­ments in the Christi­an­ity chap­ter alone. But the book is well pro­duced and indexed, and a bonus is a section on “inde­pendent belief systems”.
