As an introduction to the book, The Great Religions by Which Men Live, (1956), Floyd . We tend to look upon other religions as less pure or genuine. We forget that the Oriental finds many of our beliefs incredible. Yet no religion should be measured by its lowest expression - it should be measured by its highest. And looking at the great prophets of the great religions, we see how similar they were in many of their attitudes. To honor one does not mean to dishonor another.

The Great Religions By Which Men Live. toward richer living. Having started an acquaintance with these different great religions of the world in the preceding chapters, you may be asking: "Out of all these religions, must I individually choose my religion? Must I decide whether to be a Buddhist, or a Hindu, or a Moslem, or a Confucian, or a follower of Judaism, or a Christian?" Perhaps, on the one hand, you have been happily surprised to find these other religions much finer than you had supposed.

  • I read this book, in a much earlier edition, while I was still in high school. It was a hand-off from my older brother's college religion course. Revised, this book introduces the reader to a much wider world than she or he is likely to have been raised in. Read it as a guide, and follow up with other books specific to the religions which speak to you. I believe that works by followers of a particular faith have more substance; but they also in their selectiveness, leave out other information of worth. Books such as this one provide balance and much useful background. I give it five stars, as it impacted the course of my life in what I believe was an important way.

  • Best summary of the religions of the world I have seen. It is written in a way that is not bias to any religion. Highly recommended.

  • This book, originally published in 1956, was my first introduction to comparative religion. Because the subject is essentially timeless, one could do far worse than to use it as a starting point even today. On the first page of the forward it draws the distinction between prophets and priests, and how both are found in every great religious tradition. I never forgot that. The perspective of the text is to look towards the truly prophetic and divinely inspired in all the priestly religions- to cut through the ossified forms and rituals. Above all, it points out that a worthy God, the true God, must be a God of all peoples.
    Besides this enlightened approach to the unity of religious traditions, this book serves well in the secondary function as a reference book on the basic core beliefs, history, practices, holy days, customs, and sects of all the principle religions of the world. Well organised into sections on Brahmanic Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese Religions, Religion of Japan, and the Semitic Religions, with a full index, it is easy to quickly look up the detail you need. I know I've reached for my copy more times than I can count over the years.

  • Unlike most books found in Christian bookstores, GREAT RELIGIONS BY WHICH MEN LIVE harbors no hidden agendas, skewed teachings, or hubris. The authors are intelligent, candid, and comprehensive in their approach to describing the major established religions of the world. The book points in a direction toward wider horizons where one can explore other views with clarity and fairness. The chapter on Taoism truly opened my eyes and my heart to the people of other cultures. Time spent reading this small book is time well spent.
