This abridgment presents the major doctrines and histories of the faiths named in the subtitle. It is divided into three parts, with Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity combined. This production is a good introduction that might lead to further investigation despite the title. Music introduces each side of the cassettes and ends each part, though the endings of each side are not announced. Ben Kingsley's distinguished voice is delightful to hear. Interspersed in his narrative are quotes by various people important in the histories of these faiths. These quotes are read by a number of actors and actresses who impart an appropriate accent and tone to each character. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
