Review quote

"A first-class introductory work for the uninitiated, and one that can be read with profit by the mature student and scholar. Its brevity should tempt no one to disdain. In short compass this book contains the precipitate of years of study and reflection." Norman K. Gottwald, Review of Religion, March 1955 (reviewing the first edition)"show more
