I disagree that the best way to study religion is learning from a page from the World Almanac. The information is not accurate and not adequate when comparing the world non-Christian on a few paragraph.
First, Among all those ambiguous religion questions, one of them is very difficult to answer- who is the founder of the religion? According to the informative paper: "Founder of Hinduism--The Aryan invaders" which actually in the modern history people consider that there is no single founder. However, the religion is originally established by God Himself (dharman tu sakshad bhagavat pranitam) which claimed by the ancient ...view middle of the document...

" it will be unfortunately to miss out this information to learn what Hinduism's sacred text are. This is similar to the case that if you do not know how to practice violin, it will be more difficult to understand the beauty of violinist performance.
In addition, I did not think the World Almanac provided accurate information for Non-Christian religion in a real life situation. As far as I experience of the Buddhism, their organization are Sangha, only described on the level people who become a monk or nun. Actually, rituals can also be performed by any-one as long as one practice or have faith in Buddha similar the organization of Hinduism. Also, there are difference between the Buddhism division's regarding the organization. In real life, Tibetan Buddhism is widely practice and very hierarchy, however, it is not so much in China where is more liberal less politically involved.
Plus, I think this informative paper missing a lot of information regarding its practice. It become another reason that it did not become very adequate to fully bring out the value behind the religion. For example, it did not mention anything about the Four sights of Buddhism, which could help people understand why they practice in harsh condition to become enlighten. Also, we were informed that different location has different division. As a good study material, I think a lot of the work should be done to explain the reason behind the religion become divided into different groups.
Finally, look over the entire comparisons, I only see difference between one religion to another. However, all humanities has similarity but still different. I hold the believe that the to understand religion, we have to look on the their similarities to study humanity in general. Studying religion should be inspiring and interesting. I would be more enjoyable to see the similarities of religion are listed in this World Almanac paper.
In conclusion, I do not agree that this paper is adequately teach student about Non-Christian Religion. I think it did not provided accurate information about their founder; has not provided a reliable source and explanation for their sacred texts; did not paint a big picture of their organization in a real world; missing a lot crucial foundation information of their religious practices and not yet mention their seminaries. I suggest that more research has to be done to this summary otherwise they should be very careful of titling this summary. Its name "World Almanac" might not be accurate neither.
