Publisher Comments:

Too often we have come to associate faith with narrow interests and competing dogmas. The Big Picture gives voice to a larger point of view: that a grand and remarkable unity underlies all of our major religious traditions. Here is the forgotten truth about the sacred teachings, principles, and themes that have unified perennial philosophies through the ages, brought to life by our greatest living scholar of comparative religions, Huston Smith. On The Big Picture, Smith draws from his lifetime of scholarship to describe for us the nature of ultimate reality, combining the most up-to-date findings of science with the enduring truths of the world's greatest religions. The vision is mystical and, as supported by the evidence Smith introduces, completely believable. Join this distinguished author, scholar, and teacher as he explores the world's great religions-and what they all have in common. America's religious landscape is changing before our eyes, and no one has done more to prepare us for the new religious reality than Huston Smith.-Bill Moyers
