Résumé :

This volume offers an introduction to comparative religion, exploring the essential elements and teachings of the world's predominant faiths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the native traditions of Australia, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas. Emphasizing the inner, rather than the institutional, dimension of these religions, the author devotes special attention to Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, and the teachings of Jesus. He conveys the unique appeal and gifts of each of the traditions and reveals their hold on the human heart and imagination. Includes a new preface to the 50th anniversary edition written by the author in January 2009, as well as a supplemental section on p. 401-431 of insights, interviews, and more.
