The book is an open-eyed journey through the mystic world of faith. It is an intellectually stimulating account of the birth of religions. As animals, for definite, have no religions and intelligence is the dividing line between man and animals, it should be amply clear that religions have risen out of the thinking faculty of man. These are about God and His creation all right, but not from God- though human brain itself is certainly a great gift of God. The writer has tried to visualize what might have actually happened on the ground in this spiritual area ages back and how it came to settle in human psyche as faith. The book traces the story of religions from the earliest times and tries to reach to the core of all major belief systems of the world. Towards the end, it draws a sort of balance-sheet of the religions to form a view what good and bad these have done to the humankind. An effort has also been made to have a peep into their future.
