Most widely held works by Marcus Weeks
The religions book : [big ideas simply explained] ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 823 libraries worldwide
Religion has influenced human culture since prehistory, shaping everything from the politics of war and peace to notions of morality and issues of sex, reproduction, and family. On an individual level, it has also offered people a sense of meaning, purpose, and comfort, and even today, when science appears to offer answers to many of the world's conundrums, faith persists and many religions--including Christianity and Islam--are still growing. The Religions Book explains in a clear, accessible way more than 100 of the most important theological ideas, from those bound up in the earliest cultures to others that have emerged in the last few hundred years, along with all of the main tenets of the world's major faiths. In doing so, it considers key issues such as the problem of defining good and evil, the significance of suffering, creation and the afterlife ("Why are we here?" and "Why do we die?"), and the nature of god.--Publisher's description

The Devil's diaries by Marcus Weeks( Book )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 43 libraries worldwide
The recently discovered journals of Satan, revealing his personal thoughts on events from the Fall to the Apocalypse. In "The Devil's Diaries," Monty Python meets Bridget Jones with a little more fire and a lot more brimstone. In his own words, Satan muses on key dates throughout history--reveling in his role as the mastermind behind the Fall, rock 'n' roll, Y2K, and, of course, global warming. The Dark One grumbles at the way some of his best work has been hijacked and credited elsewhere, and confesses his frustration that many of his efforts go unappreciated. Even Satan falls in love, goes on vacation, suffers from depression, and deserves a little sympathy from time to time

How many molehills in a mountain? : measuring what you don't know in terms of what you do by Marcus Weeks( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
If, instead, we were to say that the whale's tongue weighs the same as a single African elephant, and that the entire whale tips the scales at the equivalent of 25 elephants, then you might suddenly grasp its magnitude. Journalists have long recognized this phenomenon, which is why they describe rainforest being destroyed in areas the size of Wyoming or, indeed, Wales. How Many Molehills in a Mountain? reveals the world through visual equivalents - so that size, speed and mass make instant sense. You will discover how many times higher than Monsieur Eiffel is the Eiffel Tower, and how many Eiffel Towers there are in a Mount Everest. Plus how many grandfathers take you back to the Jurassic period
