Smith, Wilfred C.
W.C. Smith's vastly erudite work asks how it is that certain texts have so seeped in to human life-in a rich, complex, and powerful way-as to be deemed sacred. Examining the history and use of scripture in the world's major religious traditions, he shows how and why scripture continues to carry momentous and at time appalling power in human affairs.Smith, Wilfred C. is the author of 'What Is Scripture?: A Comparative Approach' with ISBN 9780800627829 and ISBN 0800627822.
