Passwords to Paradise
Passwords to Paradise How Languages Have Re-invented World Religions By Ostler, Nicholas Book - 2016

The book was fine. I had been hoping for more examples of how words and concepts changed as they were translated, but it turned out to be a lot of history of how the religions spread. Had that been what I was looking for, I probably would've found it interesting, but I had been hoping for a more linguistic take. There were some examples, but not nearly as many as I would have liked. It just wasn't what I was expecting.
