KIRKUS REVIEW

The country, the founders, the history, the program of instruction, the practices, rituals, doctrines, creeds and philosophies of nine faiths are presented so that their great heritages are evident. If you had been born a Hindu, Parsi, Buddhist, Confucianist, Shintoist, Jew, Moslem, Roman Catholic or Protestant here are the patterns of religion you would follow, the ideals and symbols you would know, the traditions and customs you would practise, the commandments and rules of conduct by which you would live. This, for all its presentation of the differences, argues for spiritual unity by indicating the similarities that make for a universal kinship The handling of the material, in presenting each faith as if you had been born in it, is directed toward the layman with an interest in comparing religious beliefs and the book could be of use in young people's study.
