A Handbook of Living Religions Reviews
This book has been sitting on my shelf for over 3 years now. I picked it up this morning to see if I could find if Buddhists could eat after midday. Whilst I didn't find the direct answer to that question, it 'enlightened' :) me enough to realise the answer is both yes and no. Anyway, I am very interested in history, religion, anthropology, sociology; anything that helps me understand who and what I am. I figure if each of us understood the mechanisms that created who we are, then perhaps we will become far more sympathetic and tolerant of others and what they have become: Yeah, I know, good luck.
This is a books of essays on different religious traditions. It includes essays on Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, Buddhism, Chinese religions, Japanese religions, religions in primal societies, modern alternative religions in the west, and a case study on Baha'ism (yay for recitations of the table of contents!). Given the breadth of material, it can be expected that it does not have much depth. However, the book does give an excellent overview of the basic history, beliefs, and current (as of 20 years ago) development of these religions.
This is quite a little handbook, but flawed certainly. The text is peppered with little mistakes, and the quality of information about each religion is quite uneven. Verdict: take with salt.
