Series: Routledge Dictionaries. Hart covers some very minor gods that Wilkinson doesn't, and vice versa. Hart covers the major deities in more detail than Wilkinson does, but the entries in Wilkinson's book have more consistent internal organization.

Series: Routledge Dictionaries. Hart's alphabetical arrangement is probably more convenient for most people than Wilkinson's approach of grouping deities by the form they were depicted in, though both are imperfect (many names have variant spellings; many deities appear in several forms).

And modern man, proud as he is of his reason and logic, fares no better when he is called upon to recognize an authentic view of God in the often and – in the most literal sense – obscure rites and images of an alien religion.

Useful resource for research, a few details included not always in other sources

Hart's book has entries on nearly as many gods as its competitor, Richard Wilkinson's The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt. Hart covers some very minor gods that Wilkinson doesn't, and vice versa. Hart covers the major deities in more detail than Wilkinson does, but the entries in Wilkinson's book have more consistent internal organization. Hart's alphabetical arrangement is probably more convenient for most people than Wilkinson's approach of grouping deities by the form they were depicted in, though both are imperfect (many names have variant spellings; many deities appear in several forms). I favor Wilkinson's book because it says more about how deities' significance changed over time and, unlike Hart's, it has a lot of information about the general characteristics of the gods, which makes their often confusing behavior easier to understand. But you can't go wrong buying either book.
