This was an optional book for my World Religions bachelors program class. I found the explanations of the religious easy to read and follow. There are excepts of sacred text in each chapter that were useful in comprehending the many different religious viewpoints of the world.

This is a good collection of primary texts from the world religions. I like the features of the book–a section called “grace notes.” It is one of the rare collections that is affordable.

Excellent Reference Material

This book, filled with excerpts of sacred texts of many of the major world religions, is a planned companion in structure to Huston Smith’s masterpiece, World Religions. It offers the sacred texts without commentary or judgement to support the reader in simply BE-ing with the texts and finding their own interpretation of the essence of the writings. “The World’s Wisdom” is a book I will continue to reference throughout my ministry – and that I will share with interfaith students as a valuable source of inspiration and comparison.

Author really has a good study of texts in many ancient books. These books are considered holy in many religions. The passages are from Bhagavat Geeta, Bible, Koran etc. A more information on the background of books is essentials.
