Sacred Worlds

Sacred Worlds: An Introduction to Geography and Religion - Chris Park

The following is the last paragraph from my book review of Sacred Worlds for my World Geography class in Spring 2003:

 

Sacred Worlds is a synthesis of academic studies for geographers to show them, in Park’s mind, that in “geography of religion” their studies are based on observation not theory. Park wanted to force geographers to see that all the empirical studies of “geography of religion” have basically taken place and what is now needed is theoretical studies by geographers. If a reader is a geography student who wants to devote their time to the “geography of religion” then this is a must read book. But I caution those who are not because it will be come burden to finish.
