Description

This book comprises of four self-contained studies of the founders of the world's religious traditions: the Buddha, Confucius, Jesus and Muhammad. They were previously written for the Past Masters series, but by reprinting them in one volume, the connections between the traditions are seen. The distinctive features of the traditions are studied and the reasons why they have such a profound and lasting influence on the way people think today.show more
