The Golden Bough

Peter has read this book
Comment: “What a tome!
Thankfully I found this as an audiobook.
It is worth the listen for the different perspectives, most of which are well researched, well thought out, and despite a little bias towards the then status quo, not far from the truth.
I think if I had read the book, I would have stopped much earlier and never have completed it. The big message (for the studied Theologist/ Anthropologist etc) is that there’s nothing new under the sun.
Many, many aspects of belief are covered in this book, covered quite well in fact, but dated in some areas.
Get the audiobook, worth the time but the tome may have you dozing off and missing things worth the time.”
