    Gave it 4 stars the first time bumping it to 5 stars the second time This is a DENSE book but it's a work of genius Because it's a work of genius and an academic book to boot a bunch of the nuanced discussions of say Norse and Hebrew grammar went over my head Still the implications are digestible The book is relevant to anthropologists journalists sociologists religion scholars historians — hell anybody who really wants to think about religion The big idea is that religion as Western scholars think of it is a constructed definition If religion is the map for viewing how humans interact with myths and gods then scholars must make a good map or else they will not interpret the world in an accurate manner But there are other gems in here as when Smith demolishes the argument of James Frazer's classic The Golden Bough defends the careful understanding of particular religions before making big sweeping comparisons of religions and recommends the use of evolutionary models as a way to understand how religions form
