The author provides an extensive history of the evolution of worship, from the earliest goddess cults to the organization of religion in the middle east, (primarily Mesopotamia), and the eventual development of christianity. Includes accounts of the changing landscapes of civilization and describes the effects resulting from a move from the primitive, (hunter gatherer community/nature worship), to a highly civilized, (city dwelling/temple worship), mode of living. He also discusses cults, sects, festivals and their importance to ancient peoples, creation myths and the rise of kingships.
