“The history of religion is the thrilling story of man’s upward climb to God…  Out of early man’s bold journey to find God – in his glorious adventure to reach the mountain peak of his experience – he joined with other men...  Together they fashioned their altars and their shrines, and that, simply stated, is how organized religion began.”  (Bach: pages 11 & 12)

“Our search in this study is to discover what each faith does in and for the lives of its adherents.” (Bach page 18)
