It looks into the concepts of god which is one area so vast and the attempts of man right from Ancient Times till today spread over different parts of the globe how he has dreamt, visualized, conceptualized and imagined the reality of god. The very field as one could see is more like a great ocean, but the book makes an attempt looking into what mankind at different parts of the globe over millennia have speculated and arrived at some tentative and definite conclusions about the concept of god. The initial part of the book discusses in detail Religious beliefs and practices in South Africa, South America, Australia, Polynesia and Malaynesia covering several ethnics and tribal groups, detailing their religious life and practices.
