Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

God's Breath: Sacred Scripture of the World assembled essential texts from seven sacred wisdom traditions of the world—Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism, and Taoism. Now God's Light presents the compelling life stories of the key figures from these religious traditions: the Buddha, Jesus, Moses, Arjuna, Muhammad, Rumi, and Lao Tzu. Each figure is represented by a main profile as well as a briefer preface. Among the notable contributors are Elie Wiesel and Zora Neale Hurston on Moses, Coleman Barks and Thomas Merton on Rumi, Marcus Borg and Mother Teresa on Jesus, and Thich Nhat Hanh and Peter Matthiessen on the Buddha. Each contribution is preceded by an elegant woodcut of the religious figure—and the volume shares with its predecessor a beautifully crafted volume, ideally priced and produced, that is the perfect companion for every home.

Synopsis:

"God's Light" assembles brief, superb bios of the leading figure from each ofseven sacred wisdom traditions of the world--Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sufism, and Taoism.
