This is a fully revised edition of an anthology in comparative world religions. Eastman surveys all the major religious traditions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and African religions - as well as covering Zen Buddhism and the religious experience in America. Eastman allows each tradition to speak in its own voice, excerpting passages from its scriptures, prophets, and distinguished authors.
