"From A-a, the sun goddess of Mesopotamia, to Zurvan, the Persian god of fate, Encyclopedia of Gods provides the most comprehensive insight and source of reference to the world's deities yet compiled.  More than 2,500 names are listed and detailed, including the famous and the obscure.  the references span the world from Siberia to South America.
Gods, religious extensions of mankind's psyche, have been present for at least 30,000 years of history and prehistory, although only those from recent millennia have been recorded by name.  Within the latter span this book covers the gods of ancient mythology and contemporary religion with equal emphasis."
