Anyone with an interest in a foreign culture or religion should check out the collection of religious books and world books produced by National Geographic. These books are full of photos and articles on cultures in areas that aren’t easily accessed by the general public. For example, Inside the Vatican takes readers into the Pope’s personal chambers and covers the funeral of Pope John Paul II, as well as Pope Benedict XVI’s trip to the United States, from an insider’s point of view. And The Lost Gospel tells the mystery of how the Gospel of Judas traveled through a dangerous period of history to eventually be translated and published. These spiritual and culture books will take readers on journeys through time and around the world via words and pictures. They make excellent additions to personal libraries, and if you have someone in your family with an interest in cultures and religions, be sure to pick one of these collectable items up as a gift.
