THE BUDDHA, THE PROPHET AND THE CHRIST

This is one of a series of books, ""Ethical and Religious Classics of East and West"",- an effort by the editors and publishers to make available for the spiritual hunger of men a feast of good things locked up and hidden away from the average reader. This volume brings together from the sacred scriptures of Buddhism, Islam and Christianity selected passages which reflect the belief that the Founder of the religion was not simply a human being, but was possessed of supernatural qualities and characteristics. It is useful to have these passages from the world's great religions together between the covers of one book that each may speak for itself, and the reader be able to see how they are like, and unlike each other. In such short compass much must be left unsaid, but there is obvious agreement in this, that each is concerned with seeing things temporal in the light of things eternal, which is ever the most pressing need of mankind. In a time of renewed religious interest, many should find this little book very helpful.
