  •  Read Karen Armstrong (9+ / 0-)

    If you are "interested in learning more and more about the history, facts and myth that make up the different faiths of the world," then I definitely recommend anything by Karen Armstrong.  She is not only a foremost expert in the field, but she writes about it with a very open-minded, compassionate viewpoint.  I find her fascinating.

    The History of God is specifically about the development of the three monotheistic religions.

    The Great Transformation is about the Axial Age, and the development of religions from China and India to Greece and Israel.

    The Battle for God is about the history and dangers of fundamentalism.
