For many Comparative/World Religion topics, books can be the best type of source. There are three different types of books linked to this guide:

  • Sacred Books:  the actual religious texts (examples: Qur'an; Bible)
  • Background information: mostly academic encyclopedias
  • Books : "regular" print  books and ebooks that go into more depth on a topic
