Translated from the French.

Does for spirituality what Sophie's World did for philosophy. * Theo is fourteen, very clever, reads a lot, loves computer games and the Greek myths.

But then, suddenly, he falls ill. His rich aunt Martha decides that they must roam the world to find a cure for his malaise. * What follows is a tour of the world's religions and religious sites, with the sceptical, quizzical Theo being shown the varieties and depths of faith that exist in other places, other cultures. * All this is handled with real style, pace, wit and clarity.

The book is a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to why and how people believe in their God - even Dave Allen would have liked it.
