'Comparative religion can be dry, but not the way Occhiogrosso writes it. Not only is this fat book comprehensive, it's lively and perhaps best of all, easy to understand. An excellent resource.' ?BOOKLISTThe Joy of Sects is not merely a detailed guide to the principal beliefs, scriptures, and personalities of the world's most important spiritual traditions. It also provides valuable insights into the mystical connections that link all religions beneath the surface. No other book today offers so much accessible information about Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the New Age, all in one place.Occhiogrosso, Peter is the author of 'Joy of Sects A Spirited Guide to the World's Religious Traditions', published 2005 under ISBN 9780595373925 and ISBN 0595373925.
