Don't expect to sit down and read it but have it handy for reference. I found the detailed descriptions particularly helpful.

My friends and I did a video collab project to examine some claims made by a film called Zeitgeist. The director of the film himself started messaging us via his clandestine YouTube account to discuss our findings and his later films excluded the nonsense he was spewing about Jesus being a spin-off of Egyptian mythology. A job well done! History may be written by the victors but is corrected by archeology.

This book, which has also been published as The Ancient Gods Speak, consists of articles on religious subjects culled from The Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt. The article selection casts a broad net, extending even to particular types of ritual objects like offering tables, funerary cones, and masks. It's far less cumbersome than the parent book, but the selection of articles is haphazard. It seems to have been based on the religion section of the encyclopedia's table of contents. For instance, this book is missing the articles on mythological texts and hymns (because they're listed in the literature section of the table of contents) and temples (because that article is listed under architecture—even though tombs, which are also listed there, are included!). The worst omission is the article on religion in general, left out for no reason I can discern, though Redford wrote an introduction specifically for this volume that discusses some of the basics and gives the context for the articles themselves. The lengthy lists of further reading that come with each article in the full encyclopedia are reduced to a more general further reading list at the end of the book. The articles on individual deities are nearly all here, and this book may work best as a source for discussions of the major gods. Obviously the full book is preferable if available, though for most people it's not, owing to its price and size.

I was so disappointed to discover that this was the same book that I had already bought under another name. It used to be called "The Ancient Gods Speak: A guide to Egyptian religion." This book in turn consists of a compilation of all the articles related to religion that were initially published in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt.
For those who do not have access to either the book under its older name, or the excellent Encyclopdia, than this would be a worthwhile purchase. It covers many of the major aspects of Egytpian religion, though it also leaves out many. In terms of ease of reading, the type is really small! I found it extremely difficult to read.
