"If one buys only one of the number of recent introductions to world religions, this should be it." --Publishers Weekly
Detailed, absorbing, richly illustrated, and highly readable, this work presents the essential elements and teachings of each of the predominant world religions, including primal religions, and illuminates each with full-color illustrations.
Retaining all the beloved qualities of Huston Smith's classic "The Religions of Man" and the current fully revised and updated "The World's Religions," this stunning pictorial presentation refines the text to its wonderful essentials. In detailed, absorbing, richly illustrated, and highly readable chapters on Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, and primal religions, we find refreshing and fascinating presentations of both the differences and the similarities among the worldwide religious traditions.
The approach is at once classic and contemporary, retaining all the empathy, eloquence and erudition that millions of readers love about the earlier editions, while being edited and designed for a contemporary general readership. This delightful marriage of winsome text and remarkable pictures vividly brings to life the scope and vision of Huston Smith's expertise and insight.
