This is a most complete book for understanding the early struggles of reasoning one's way to a specific religious dogma. It's inclusion of Zoroastrianism along with the three better known monotheisms, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is fundamental to an appreciation of coming to one's belief by reason rather than culturally. Unfortunately, the use of some arabic characters in words of that language, rather than those commonly used in English, render the words unpronouncible by my voice synthesizer.
