Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


This book uses history and archaeology to examine the origins of major monotheistic religions: describing the contexts of times, places and societies where Mormonism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism began. It strips away myths and later traditions to provide a secular account of how these faiths first took root.
